Norman Rockwell Museum welcomed an enthusiastic and full house during the opening of its newest exhibition, Wendell Minor’s America, on Saturday, November 9, 2013. Celebrating four decades as a professional artist, Wendell Minor was on hand to meet the crowd and sign copies of his many illustrated covers and children’s books. Also taking part in the festivities were other well-known illustrators, as well as Pulitzer-Prize winning author David McCullough, whose best-selling books (The Great Bridge, Truman, John Adams, 1776) have been enhanced with beautifully illustrated covers painted by Minor over the years. The following day, Minor and McCullough spoke further about their longtime friendship and collaboration during a sold-out talk held at the Museum.
Wendell Minor’s America is on view at Norman Rockwell Museum through May 26, 2014.
