Norman Rockwell’s Stand on Civil Rights
Monday, January 15
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 to explore this aspect of the artist’s work, including powerful imagery created for Look, and the magazine’s reader responses to Rockwell’s visual commentary. Sweet and savory treats will be served. Free for Museum members, or included with Museum admission.
