Heroes and Homecomings: Norman Rockwell and World War II
America's most beloved illustrator created dozens of images related to the second World War. What happens when an artist known for his use of humor tackles the serious subject of war? This program explores how Norman Rockwell's work departs from earlier artistic interpretations of American conflicts and considers how and why he chose specific wartime themes to present to the millions of readers of the Saturday Evening Post. NOTE: the 75th Anniversary of Cathedral of the Pines is August 22-30. The August 27 Art Show is in conjunction with the Jaffrey Civic Center 5-7pm.
