Norman Rockwell Museum will present Wonder of the Holidays, an afternoon with Caldecott Award-winning illustrator Jerry Pinkney on Saturday, December 8, from 1 to 4 p.m. Pinkney will share his illustrated stories of holiday wonder, warmth, and cheer by three noted authors.
In preparing to paint this 1961 Saturday Evening Post cover, Norman Rockwell noted that many countries, cultures, and religions incorporate some version of the Golden Rule into their belief systems. “Do Unto Others as You Would Have Them Do Unto You” is a simple but universal phrase that reflected Rockwell’s personal philosophy.
Before the winter solstice, as the days grow shorter, people of every culture long for the return of light. This fall/winter season Norman Rockwell Museum will explore the commonality and distinctiveness of people through the art and stories found in children’s holiday picture books created by six award-winning illustrators. Cultural Traditions: A Holiday Celebration is on view at the Museum from November 17, 2018 through February 10, 2019.
