The Museum will be open until 5 p.m. today, Monday, November 11: stop by to view patriotic works by illustrators Norman Rockwell and Wendell Minor.
Norman Rockwell Museum is busy preparing for the installation of its newest exhibition, Wendell Minor’s America, opening Saturday, November 9, 2013. An award-winning artist and member of the Museum’s board of trustees, Wendell Minor has long been a fan of Norman Rockwell’s work, which partly inspired him to become an illustrator himself.

A cider and donut reception will precede the tour on the lawn adjacent to the bell tower parking area at the old town hall in Stockbridge.
