Norman Rockwell Museum wishes you a happy start of the spring season. The Museum will be open for extended hours this week (10 a.m. to 5 p.m.) for school vacation week. We love company—stop by to view our new illustration exhibitions, enjoy related programs, and take part in art workshops for the entire family.
Norman Rockwell Museum presents the world’s largest collection of original Norman Rockwell art, including beloved paintings from The Saturday Evening Post and the Four Freedoms, and the best in the field of American illustration. Experience Rockwell’s art, life and legacy in the artist’s picturesque New England hometown of Stockbridge, Massachusetts nestled in the culturally rich Berkshires.
In conjunction with its current exhibition, “Wendell Minor’s America,” Norman Rockwell Museum will present an afternoon with author Mary Higgins Clark and illustrator Wendell Minor on Saturday, May 10, starting at 1 p.m. Ms. Higgins Clark and Mr. Minor will talk about their long-running friendship and collaboration on two illustrated children’s books: “The Magical Christmas Horse” and “Ghost Ship.”
Special Exhibition To Focus on Little-Known Period of The Realist Master’s Career
In December 2013, artwork by Norman Rockwell and Edward Hopper set the all-time sales records for American paintings at auction, confirming the enduring popularity of these two artists from the twentieth century.
This summer, Norman Rockwell Museum will present the early work of these two remarkable artists side by side, offering a rare glimpse into their formative years before they embarked on divergent paths as painters. “The Unknown Hopper: Edward Hopper as Illustrator” will be on view at Norman Rockwell Museum from June 7 through October 26, 2014.
Recently announced, our major gift from the Famous Artists School has been garnering quite a bit of press lately. This Sunday’s New York Times reported on the substantial art and archives donation, made possible by Robert and Magdalen Livesey of Cortina Learning International, which still runs a version of the popular art correspondence course to this day.
On view March 29 through June 15, 2014
Norman Rockwell Museum is proud to present the latest in its Distinguished Illustrator Series of exhibitions. “Baseball, Rodeos, and Automobiles” celebrates 60 years of artistic creation by Murray Tinkelman, one of the nation’s most prominent illustrators, educators, and illustration historians.
