Art Bio Lecture: Norman Rockwell
Few people really know very much about the man who tells stories in his paintings. He has been so many contrasting things: a city boy, a country gentleman, a high school dropout, devoted family man, bon vivant swinger, international playboy and a recluse. "People like to think that Rockwell painted Middle America. The truth is, Norman Rockwell invented Middle America." He invites the viewer to chuckle, sigh, and react. He entertains and provokes our imagination.
Join us for a fascinating lecture and slide presentation by Felicia Zavarella Stadelman.
