Event Details

The Gadsden Arts Center & Museum is pleased to host Norman Rockwell in the 1960s, an
exhibition of prints organized by the Norman Rockwell Museum in Stockbridge,
Massachusetts, focusing on illustrations he created for magazines during that
turbulent decade. In 1963, the artist ended his almost 5 decade-long
association with The Saturday Evening Post and began to search for
new artistic challenges. Rockwell left behind his beloved story-telling scenes
popular in the Post and threw himself into the visual documentation of social
issues and current events like school integration, the moon landing, and the murder
of civil rights workers.

admission: $10 for nonmember adults (includes 6 exhibitions); free for Gadsden
Arts Center & Museum members, free for children ages 17 and under. Exhibition
admission-free days: March 2 / April 6 / May 4. Guided tours are offered for all groups at no additional charge (reservations 850-627-5023).

The ArtZone and Fletcher Museum Shop are always admission-free.
