Behind the Camera
"Norman Rockwell: Behind the Camera" takes a look at Rockwell's meticulous use of reference photography in constructing his highly detailed illustrations. Based on author Ron Schick's book of the same title (Little Brown), the exhibition pairs the artist’s photographs with original artwork to reveal, frame-by-frame, the creation of the artist’s iconic paintings. The exhibition will be on view at Norman Rockwell Museum through May 31, 2010. Image credit: "After the Prom" (detail), Norman Rockwell, 1957. Photo by Bill Scovill.

Berkshire living
Like Norman Rockwell, Gregory Crewdson makes use of the Berkshires' unique landscape and inhabitants to create his imaginative works. Crewdson's family has long owned a cabin in the woods in this culturally-rich region of Western Massachusetts; Rockwell lived in the town of Stockbridge from 1955 to 1978, and went on to create many iconic works, including "Main Street Stockbridge at Christmas."
