Norman Rockwell’s 1960 painting Golden Rule provides the inspiration for an afternoon of family fun with an international flavor, featuring multicultural music from A Beautiful Future; traditional kamishibai Japanese storytelling with Diane Clouet; ethnic displays from BRIDGE of Great Barrington, and The Literacy Network; art-making opportunities; a display of classic 1960s automobiles by the Piston Poppers; a Runaway-inspired diner replica created by Lt. Thomas McNulty; and more. Norman Rockwell’s original Stockbridge studio will also be open to visitors, offering a unique look at the artist’s workspace during the year 1960, a pivotal moment in Rockwell’s life and career.
The 2nd Annual World Rhythms Community Day is free for children 18 and under, and for adults with regular Museum admission.
