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. Join Nesmith Library (virtually) on Thursday, January 14 at 6 PM when we welcome back Jane Oneail to guide us through an overview of Norman Rockwell's career, and explore more deeply the several poignant works about race in America that can be seen as an extension of Rockwell's earlier sense of the power of inclusion and exclusion. Thank you to the Friends of the Library of Windham (FLOW) for sponsoring this program!
