American Chronicles: The Art of Norman Rockwell

March 5, 2014May 26, 2014

Exhibition tracing the evolution of Rockwell’s art and iconography throughout his career using in-depth commentary, original artworks, and archival Saturday Evening Post covers spanning 47 years.

American Chronicles: The Art of Norman Rockwell traces the evolution of Rockwell’s art and iconography throughout his career – from carefully choreographed reflections on childhood innocence in such paintings as "Day in the Life of a Little Girl" (1952) to powerful, consciousness-raising images like "The Problem We All Live With" (1964), documenting the traumatic realities of desegregation in the South.  Rockwell’s artistic contributions and the impact of his images on American popular culture are explored within the context of his life and times.

All Day (check w/venue for hours).

American Chronicles was made possible in part by a grant from the New Jersey Council for the Humanities, a state partner of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
