Norman Rockwell Exhibit


 Norman Rockwell had the ability to bring a story to life through his paintings and illustrations.  He simply told a viewer a story in one frame and no wonder his illustrations spoke to the readers of the Saturday Evening post throughout the great Depression and WWII.  Today his paintings and illustrations continue to spark the imaginations of the viewer.

Today Rockwell fans can experience and view many of his illustrations and paintings  at the Museum of American Art in Washington D.C.  The exhibit will continue to be open up until January 2, 2011.

 No man with a conscience can just bat out illustrations.
He’s got to put all his talent and feeling into them! 
Norman Rockwell 

The secret to so many artists living so long is that every painting is a new adventure.
So, you see, they’re always looking ahead to something new and exciting.
The secret is not to look back. 
Norman Rockwell
