About Norman Rockwell Museum
Norman Rockwell Museum, located in Stockbridge, Massachusetts, holds the largest and most significant collection of
art and archival materials relating to the life and work of legendary American illustrator Norman Rockwell and a growing
collection of original illustration art that reflects the vibrancy, evolution, and resilience of the field — from the emergence
of printed mass media in the mid-nineteenth century to the innovations of digital media today. Illustration is the art of
the people — at once the most democratic and influential form of art. Through our dedication to this expansive body of
materials, which have reflected and shaped American popular culture, we seek to examine the nature of published images
and their integral presence as artistic and cultural artifacts through time. Visit
