In Search of Norman Rockwell's America
May 6 - July 10, 2011
1902 North Shoreline Drive, Corpus Christi, TX 78041
This exhibition pairs the work of American icon Norman Rockwell with images by award-winning photojournalist Kevin Rivoli. The exhibition features a selection of 35 black and white photographs alongside 35 similarly evocative Rockwell originals. Rockwell, who was and remains immensely popular, was often dismissed by critics who claimed his work too sentimental and nostalgic. Depicted in the exhibition are typical Rockwell images of freedom, the Boy Scouts of America and various sporting activities.
