Norman Rockwell:

Stories of Emotion

October 23, 2021–February 13 , 2022
Gallery 119 [map it]

A DAI exclusive, this intimate Focus Exhibition features paintings and drawings, on loan from a private collection, by America’s most beloved artist and illustrator, Norman Rockwell (1894-1978).

A master at picturing the poignant moment that can tell a complete story, Rockwell has long been celebrated for his humor and artistic skill. The featured works-including 12 original paintings and drawings, three lithographs and other Rockwell-related items-highlight his ability to express emotion to showcase universal human themes.

Additional works by other artists will help put Rockwell’s work in a broader, art-historical context.

This Focus Exhibition is free to members and included in museum general admission for non-members. Museum general admission includes access to Ralston Crawford: Air + Space + War (opening Oct. 30) and all other current Focus Exhibitions.
