Rockwell and Warhol Unite in Stockbridge

{Through October 29, 2017} Norman Rockwell and Andy Warhol mix it up at the Norman Rockwell Museum in Stockbridge.

Inventing America: Rockwell and Warhol, the first exhibition to bring together lauded visual artists Norman Rockwell and Andy Warhol, is now on view at the Norman Rockwell Museum in Stockbridge. An immersive museum-organized exploration into their work, the show reveals the extensive influence and continued legacies of two celebrated image-makers who embraced populism, shaped national identity, and opened new ways of seeing in 20th Century America. Original iconic artworks; process materials and studies; archival photography, manuscripts, and documents; film and video footage; and props, costumes, and personal artifacts will all be displayed.

Andy Warhol was a leading figure in the pop art movement. His work explores the relationship between artistic expression, celebrity culture, and consumerism. Norman Rockwell was a painter and illustrator known for his often humorous depictions of small town American life.

The Normal Rockwell Museum houses the world’s largest and most significant collection of Rockwell art. It presents, preserves, and studies the art of illustration and is a world resource for reflection, involvement and discovery inspired by Norman Rockwell and the power of visual images to shape and reflect society.
