Stockbridge, MA, April 18, 2012—Norman Rockwell Museum will present “We Can Do It: Shaping Popular Opinion During World War II,“ a special talk and brunch, on Sunday, April 22, starting at 11 a.m. During World War II, the government turned to American illustrators to help inform popular opinion during the conflict. Joyce K. Schiller, Ph.D., curator of the Museum’s Rockwell Center for American Visual Studies, will look at some of the posters made to support the war effort and at the stimulus for some of the period’s memorable illustrations, including Norman Rockwell’s 1943 “Saturday Evening Post” cover “Liberty Girl” and Howard Miller’s “We Can Do It!” poster. A continental brunch will also be served during the lecture, which is part of the Museum’s ongoing American Icons: Adventures in Illustration series. Admission to the talk/brunch is free with paid adult Museum admission, $10 for Museum members. To register, contact the Museum at 413.931.2260.
