Club Meeting – January 28th, 2016
Today Della Watkins, Executive Director, of the Taubman Museum of Art spoke with enthusiasm and pride about a major exhibit coming to the Roanoke Valley region March 20th through June 12th. The exhibit, American Chronicles: The Art of Norman Rockwell, will feature original works drawn from the Norman Rockwell Museum’s permanent collection. The exhibit will include 55 paintings and 300 Saturday Evening Post magazine covers which capture and portray, in Rockwell’s unique way, America culture during the mid-twentieth century.
The event will be the first use of a new 3,400 sq. ft. exhibit hall created by the renovation of the once planned iMax theatre. Ms Watkins shared many insights with the Club about Norman Rockwell and the works we shall be able to admire in the exhibit.
