Norman Rockwell and the American Family

On Display December 6th, 2018 – January 19, 2019

The Norman Rockwell Museum presents Norman Rockwell and the American Family, part of a series of traveling exhibitions celebrating the art of Norman Rockwell. “The traveling exhibitions extend the Museum’s print and archival collections beyond our walls to audiences who may not have the opportunity to visit the Museum in Stockbridge, Massachusetts.” says Museum Director Laurie Norton Moffatt. This exhibit will be on display for a short 6 week exhibit period over the Christmas holiday, making for a great outing with family and friends and a wonderful way to pass these amazing images onto the next generation!

In the 1950s and 1960s, the Massachusetts Mutual Life Insurance Company of Springfield, Massachusetts, commissioned illustrator Norman Rockwell to create scenes reflecting American family life for its national advertising campaign. These popular images appeared in leading publications such as The Saturday Evening Post, Time, and Newsweek, with text that inspired readers to consider purchasing life insurance. Many of Rockwell’s Stockbridge neighbors, and the artist himself, appear as models in the series. The images constitute the largest group of works created by the artist for any single commission.
