Norman Rockwell Museum
Article by Dave Read.
The Norman Rockwell Museum in Stockbridge, Mass., a popular cultural venue in the Berkshires, houses 574 of Norman Rockwell’s paintings and drawings. Rockwell (1894- 1978), who lived in Stockbridge for the last 25 years of his life, helped establish the museum, which occupies 36-acre site overlooking the Housatonic River, with a main gallery building designed by Robert Stern and including Rockwell’s studio.
In addition to permanent displays of Rockwell’s work, the museum schedules traveling exhibitions and special educational, curatorial, and entertainment programs with an emphasis on illustration and story telling. Over the years, the schedule at the Norman Rockwell Museum has included exhibitions featuring the art of the New Yorker, Frederic Remington, James Gurney, National Geographic Society illustrators, and Stan and Jan Berenstain.
