Norman Rockwell
Event Date: 11/26/2014 to 1/8/2015
Event Location: Columbia Museum of Art - 1515 Main Street Columbia, SC 29202
Event Description:

Norman Rockwell: Behind the Camera - October 17, 2014 - January 08, 2015
Norman Rockwell is one of the most famous and beloved American illustrators for his depictions of everyday life created with humor, skill, and emotion. However, it is little known that he staged photographs to make his popular covers of the Saturday Evening Post . This landmark exhibition includes 50 photographs that show the careful process Rockwell used to make his art, as well as 16 original paintings and drawings. Selecting props and locations, choosing and directing his models, he carefully orchestrated each element of his design for the camera before beginning to paint. This exhibition takes viewers "behind the scenes" in the creative process of one of America's great masters.

This landmark exhibition includes 50 photographs that show the careful process Rockwell used to make his art, as well as 16 original paintings and drawings. Selecting props and locations, choosing and directing his models, he carefully orchestrated each element of his design for the camera before beginning to paint. This exhibition takes viewers "behind the scenes" in the creative process of one of America's great masters.

Selecting props and locations, choosing and directing his models, he carefully orchestrated each element of his design for the camera before beginning to paint. This exhibition takes viewers "behind the scenes" in the creative process of one of America's great masters.

Norman Rockwell is one of the most famous and beloved American illustrators for his depictions of everyday life created with humor, skill, and emotion.

This landmark exhibition includes 50 photographs that show the careful process Rockwell used to make his art, as well as 16 original paintings and drawings. Selecting props and locations, choosing and directing his models, he carefully orchestrated each element of his design for the camera before beginning to paint. This exhibition takes viewers "behind the scenes" in the creative process of one of America's great masters.

Building a Universe features creations by artists whose work deals with space and the universe, either directly or conceptually, according to Chief Curator of Art Paul Matheny.

The exhibition includes artwork from 15 South Carolina artists, many of whom created pieces specifically for this exhibit. The works represent a wide variety of media, including installation art, painting, printmaking, collage, sculpture and mixed media work.

In addition, installation art by Jocelyn Chateauvert, Virginia Scotchie and Jonathan Brilliant will be seen, as will the work of mixed media artists, painters and the final collage constructions of the late, world-renowned Robert Courtright of Sumter, created shortly before his death in late 2012.

Norman Rockwell
Event Date: 11/26/2014 to 1/8/2015
Event Location: Columbia Museum of Art - 1515 Main Street Columbia, SC 29202
Event Description:

Norman Rockwell: Behind the Camera - October 17, 2014 - January 08, 2015
Norman Rockwell is one of the most famous and beloved American illustrators for his depictions of everyday life created with humor, skill, and emotion. However, it is little known that he staged photographs to make his popular covers of the Saturday Evening Post . This landmark exhibition includes 50 photographs that show the careful process Rockwell used to make his art, as well as 16 original paintings and drawings. Selecting props and locations, choosing and directing his models, he carefully orchestrated each element of his design for the camera before beginning to paint. This exhibition takes viewers "behind the scenes" in the creative process of one of America's great masters.
