Newark Museum's Norman Rockwell Exhibit

Friday, February 28, 2014 through Monday, May 26, 2014

WNYC is a media partner for The Newark Museum's exhibit American Chronicles: The Art of Norman Rockwell.  Tracing the evolution of Rockwell’s art and iconography throughout his career.  Now to Monday, May 26.

From carefully choreographed reflections on childhood innocence in such paintings as "Day in the Life of a Little Girl" (1952) to powerful, consciousness-raising images like "The Problem We All Live With" (1964), this exhibit documents the traumatic realities of desegregation in the South.  Rockwell’s artistic contributions and the impact of his images on American popular culture are explored within the context of his life and times.
