Telling Stories: Norman Rockwell from the Collections of George Lucas and Steven Spielberg

Smithsonian American Art Museum / July 2, 2010 - January 2, 2011 / Washington, DC


Telling Stories is the first major exhibition to explore in-depth the connections between Norman Rockwell’s iconic images of American life and the movies. Two of America’s best-known modern filmmakers—George Lucas and Steven Spielberg—recognized a kindred spirit in Rockwell and formed significant collections of his work. Rockwell’s paintings and the films of Lucas and Spielberg evoke love of country, small town values, children growing up, unlikely heroes, acts of imagination and life’s ironies.
