Norman Rockwell’s Saturday Evening Post Covers: Tell Me a Story

June 18 - September 18

Mystic Museum of Art (MMoA) is pleased to present Norman Rockwell’s Saturday Evening Post Covers: Tell Me a Story, organized by the Norman Rockwell Museum in Stockbridge, MA. The highlight of the MMoA Year of Narrative Art, the exhibition will run from June 18 through September 18.

The exhibition will present all 323 of the legendary covers created for The Saturday Evening Post by the renowned American painter and illustrator, Norman Rockwell (1894-1978). In doing so, the exhibition brings together two giants of American cultural history: The Saturday Evening Post, which chronicled “American history in the making” for nearly 200 years, and Norman Rockwell, who captivated the American public by the sheer visual appeal, historic detail, and narrative brilliance of his art for more than four decades. Taken together, Rockwell’s Saturday Evening Post covers detail Americans’ lives and the history they shared for 47 years.

To bring such a vast range of imagery and subject matter into focus, MMoA will present a series of talks and events focusing on specific aspects of his art. All events will be posted on the Museum’s Events Page and publicized in eblasts. For information about tours or activities for groups, please call MMoA at 860.536.7601.
