Wednesday Sept. 14: "Norman Rockwell and Evolving Views on Rave" The artist who helped define American culture paints the Civil Right era. Norman Rockwell is heralded for depicting and defining American life. He often captured bittersweet images of people experiencing universal and relatable feelings of being left out or left behind. Yet, as an artist working in the 20th century, his works are curiously devoid of America's rich cultural and racial diversity. Toward the end of his career, Rockwell painted several poignant works about race in America that can be seen as an extension of his earlier sense of the power of inclusion and exclusion.
Presenter Jane O'Neail curated and delivers art appreciation programs to audiences throughout New England.
