The Art of Norman Rockwell
On view through Monday, May 26, 2014
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.
