Rockwell's America

It's only a week since I reported another Norman Rockwell exhibition. Now it's the turn of The Maryland Science Center in Baltimore, which presents Rockwell's America: Celebrating the Art of Norman Rockwell, a unique travelling exhibition that mixes 100 of Rockwell's original Saturday Evening Post covers with 35 life-size sculptures of Rockwell's most popular characters, 20 theatrical settings, live characters (out-of-work actors at a guess) and a whole lorryload of multimedia do-dads. Introducing kids to this great American artist must be a good thing, whatever the techniques employed. The exhibition continues until 7 January 2007. Click the title link, then wait for the swinging Touch Wonder icon to appear. Trust me. It's fun. Clever programming too.
