Wednesday, November 10 at 6:30 pm

Join us to hear Laura Nicholls, art historian and lecturer at the Desmond Campus, discuss Norman Rockwell and his iconic portrayals of 20th century America.

This program will be held virtually via Zoom. All registrants will be emailed an invitation link prior to the program. In addition, the program will be recorded and available on the Moffat Library YouTube channel afterward. You can currently enjoy some of Mrs. Nicholls’s previous lectures on our art history playlist.

Norman Rockwell, an American icon, painted his first cover for The Saturday Evening Post, in 1916. Over the next 47 years, Rockwell would paint an additional 321 images that would appear on the cover of the Post. 
In 1943, inspired by President Franklin Roosevelt’s address to Congress, Rockwell painted the Four Freedoms, which were then reproduced in four consecutive issues of The Post and accompanied by essays of contemporary writers. Rockwell’s interpretations of Freedom of Speech, Freedom to Worship, Freedom from Want, and Freedom from Fear proved to be enormously popular – and raised, through the sale of war bonds, more than $130 million for the war effort.

This talk will explore the life of Norman Rockwell, the artist and spokesman for America. Through his illustrative efforts, deepest concerns and interests – including civil rights, America’s war on poverty, and the exploration of space – Rockwell made imagery understandable in a visual language everyone could understand. (Learn more about Rockwell’s life at the Norman Rockwell museum.)
