      Join the Norman Rockwell Conversation 


      Norman Rockwell: Imagining Freedom features illustrations that have been cemented into American culture for many years. The exhibition is historic, focusing on events that helped shape America from the Great Depression through the Civil Rights era and the role that popular illustration had in people’s response to those events. Even today, these illustrations remind us of where American values are rooted. Yet, it is obvious that these images are only telling one side of the story.
