"Norman Rockwell: Behind the Camera"

Chances are good that your youngster has already seen at least one or two of Norman Rockwell's classic Americana paintings. This exhibit presents familiar images alongside photographs Rockwell used as inspiration. In the late 1930s, the artist began staging black-and-white photo shoots—some simple, others fully realized with props, locations and models. He used the resulting images as models for his iconic advertisements and magazine illustrations.
