This Thursday (March 14) at the New Lebanon Library: “Positive Images of Women in the Work of Norman Rockwell”
In recognition of Women’s History Month, join Thomas Daly for a presentation that explores the positive images of women created by Norman Rockwell during his long career as an illustrator. Daly will share images that tell the story of the importance of women’s roles during the 20th century in such paintings as “The Problem We All Live With,” “Rosie the Riveter,” and “Political Opponents,” as well as many other Rockwell images, and will connect these images to national and local figures to illustrate the current events of those times.

His programs have served tens of thousands of visitors and he has traveled to many parts of the country to on Rockwell’s work. During his 14 years with the Norman Rockwell Museum he has taken on a number of different roles and authored many articles about the work that Rockwell created during his nearly 70 year career as an illustrator.
