To Rockwell, With Love: Fan Mail and The Saturday Evening Post

January 16, 2009 through May 16, 2010

Step back in time to explore Rockwell’s imagery for The Saturday Evening Post, which prompted an outpouring of reader reaction during the artist’s forty-seven year tenure with the magazine. Shifting American values, reform and the New Deal, World War II and the rise of national identity, the Baby Boom and the rise of the middle class, and the politicization of the American populace are some of the themes that will be brought to life in this engaging and informative installation organized by Archivist Jessika Drmacich. Fan correspondence received by Rockwell himself, archival photographs, and the original Saturday Evening Post tearsheets that inspired such lively public response will be on view.
