We will meet at the museum (Norman Rockwell Museum 9 Glendale Road / Route 183, Stockbridge, MA 01262 413-298-4100) at 9:45am for a 10-11am tour.
NARRATIVE AND NUANCE: Investigate the narrative aspects of Norman Rockwell’s art and discover the wide range of stories communicated through illustrated images. The artist’s use of character plot and setting will be explored through discussion and hands on experiences. After our tour, you are free to enjoy all of the art on view in the Museum’s Permanent Collection and Special Exhibition Galleries. The museum requests that we walk through the galleries in small groups that are accompanied by a chaperone. I have requested a spot for us to eat lunch together (bring your own lunch). If the weather is nice, you can enjoy a stroll on the Museum’s bucolic 36 acre site, which is great to picnicking or just enjoying the view in the beautiful Berkshires. Climbing sculptures by Peter Rockwell, Norman Rockwell’s youngest son, are on view.
