February 4 through March 6
In 1912, 18-year-old Norman Rockwell landed the first of many successful illustration commissions for the Boy Scouts of America; four years later, he painted the first of 323 covers for The Saturday Evening Post. In celebration of the creativity of youth, Norman Rockwell Museum is proud to present the Annual Berkshire County High School Art Show. The exhibition is generously sponsored by Berkshire Bank Foundation – Legacy Region.
An annual tradition, Berkshire County high school students submit original works to the High School Art Show in a variety of media, including painting, drawing, mixed media, and sculpture. The young artists learn how to prepare their work for a gallery show, acquire a personal understanding of the exhibition process, and have the opportunity to exhibit their work in a professional museum setting.
Saturday, February 4, from 1 to 5 p.m.
Multimedia artist Ricky Bernstein will offer remarks at 2 p.m., with refreshments served.
Admission to the High School Art Show is free (does not include regular Museum admission).
