American Chronicles: The Art of Norman Rockwell

On view March 7–May 31, 2015

One of the most popular American artists of the past century, Norman Rockwell (1894–1978) was a keen observer of human nature and a gifted storyteller.  For nearly seven decades, while history was in the making all around him, Rockwell chronicled our changing society in the small details and nuanced scenes of ordinary people in everyday life, providing a personalized interpretation—albeit often an idealized one—of American identity.  His depictions offered a reassuring visual haven during a time of momentous transformation as our country evolved into a complex, modern society.  Rockwell’s contributions to our visual legacy, many of them now icons of American culture, have found a permanent place in our national psyche.

The admission for this exhibition (opening March 7th) will be $15 per adult, Seniors, Florida Educators & Active Military (plus guest) $7.50, Students $5.  Children 6 and under, free.
