“A View of the American Homefront”. Many of Norman Rockwell’s Saturday Evening Post covers during the 1940’s were inspired by life on the American homefront during World War II. Rockwell’s powerful Four Freedoms, unforgettable Rosie the Riveter, exuberant Homecoming Soldier and hapless but lovable infantryman, Willie Gillis, are among the many memorable images contained within this exhibition of original tearsheets featuring 44 Rockwell illustrations for the Saturday Evening Post. Open for viewing during regular museum hours. Admission to the exhibit is free.
Please note: the exhibit will be open until 8 pm on Friday, October 7, as part of First Friday Art Walk Fredericksburg. Visiting Curator, Thomas C. Daly, will be in attendance.
