MARTIN LUTHER KING DAY PROGRAM
Picturing Justice: Rockwell and Civil Rights
Monday, January 14
1:30 p.m.

In the 1960’s, leaving behind his beloved storytelling scenes, Rockwell threw himself into a new genre—the documentation of social issues and the expression of his belief in America’s democratic ideals. Join Curator of Education Tom Daly for an exploration of this aspect of the artist’s work, including powerful imagery created for Look, and the magazine’s reader responses to Rockwell’s bold new visual commentary. Free for Museum members, or included with Museum admission.
