The Tyler Museum of Art welcomed the art of Norman Rockwell to town on Friday. Over fifty pieces of art by Rockwell from all over the country will be on display at the "American Life and Storytelling: The Art of Norman Rockwell" exhibit, beginning June 27th.
Artisans feel Rockwell's depiction of America is one that still holds true. Artist Su Holder says his art "embodies the American spirit. These days, especially, I think Americans are drawn to that. They're from a simpler time, and there's a great deal of peace to that simpler time.
