Illustrator David Macaulay was honored as Norman Rockwell Museum’s 2011-2012 Artist Laureate during a special awards ceremony held at the Museum on Saturday, September 24. The celebrated artist behind such illustrated books as Cathedral and The Way Things Work, Macaulay has long been a supporter of the Museum, and his work was also featured in Building Books: The Art of David Macaulay, a successful 2004 exhibition that went on to travel the nation.

During the evening celebration, the artist provided a behind-the-scenes look at the creation of some of his most recent work, including The Way We Work and Built To Last. Original artwork from these books, along with his cover for the September 19, 2011 edition of The New Yorker, are currently on view at Norman Rockwell Museum.
