This fall, Norman Rockwell Museum will debut the latest in its Distinguished Illustrator Series—an exhibition that explores Mort Künstler’s vast and highly-regarded body of work as an illustrator and historical painter—”Mort Künstler: The Art of Adventure” will be on view at the Museum from November 8, 2014 through March 8, 2015.
Norman Rockwell Museum announces the new accessibility of tens of thousands of digitized black-and-white photographs from its Norman Rockwell Photographic Print Collection—the largest single collection in the Norman Rockwell Archive. Digital images are now freely viewable on the Museum’s website under “View the Collections,” and by appointment through the Stockbridge museum’s Reference Center, which has a computer workstation to accommodate its many visiting researchers.
As the seasons change, so do the displays at Norman Rockwell Museum. While we are busy preparing American Chronicles: The Art of Norman Rockwell for its European debut in Rome, Italy, we are also pleased to present a collection of rare and unique works by America’s favorite illustrator, right here in Stockbridge.
October is shaping up to be a colorful month here at Norman Rockwell Museum–inside and out!
Outside, there’s the beautifully vivid fall foliage… Inside, enjoy colorful new loans and donations; the final weeks of American Chronicles: The Art of Norman Rockwell (through October 13); The Unknown Hopper: Edward Hopper as Illustrator (through October 26); and Rockwell’s Stockbridge Studio.
If that wasn’t enough, we’re back on Jeopardy! TV’s favorite game show, on Thursday, October 9.
