Current Artists Reinterpret Norman Rockwell

No art seems to have better represented the American good life than that of the iconic Norman Rockwell. Over thirty years after his death, his traditionally themed works still resonate with a huge audience of fans, warming peoples hearts with their down to earth home-cooked goodness. Now ISM in collaboration with Muckenthaler Cultural Center are bringing together contemporary reinterpretations of his work created by 40 current artists.

The show opens at ISM in Fullerton, California on July 7th and runs through September 25th. Festivities during the July 7th opening will include two barbershop quartets, The Gaslight Revue and WYSIWYG, performing classic songs from the Great American Songbook.

Benjamin Starr

Known in some circles as the most amazing man in the universe, he once saved an entire family of muskrats from a sinking, fire engulfed steamboat while recovering from two broken arms relating to a botched no-chute wingsuit landing in North Korea. When not impressing people with his humbling humility, he can be found freelance writing, finding shiny objects on the internet, enjoying the company of much-appreciated friends and living out his nomadic nature. He is Managing Editor of Visual News. Follow his movements on Twitter:
