American Chronicles: The Art of Norman Rockwell

March 9 through May 27

One of the most popular American artists of the past century, Norman Rockwell (1894-1978) was a keen observer of human nature and a gifted storyteller. This traveling exhibition, organized by the Norman Rockwell Museum, Stockbridge, MA, features 42 original Norman Rockwell paintings and a complete set of all 323 of Rockwell’s Saturday Evening Post covers. Works in the exhibition include such beloved and well-known images as Triple Self-Portrait (1960), Girl at Mirror (1954), Going and Coming (1947), and Art Critic (1955). The exhibition will also include materials from the Museum’s archives demonstrating how Rockwell worked: proceeding from preliminary sketches, photographs, color studies, and detailed drawings to finished paintings. Timed, reserved tickets will be required to view this exhibition. Tickets are $12 for non-members and will go on sale beginning Feb. 4. There is no charge for youth ages 18 and under, or for Crystal Bridges Members, who may reserve their tickets early, beginning Jan. 21.
