Roz Chast., OMG!

Always something new! So, lots of folks think that Norman Rockwell is very middle America and humdrum. Not so. A very nuanced view of the artist and his work PLUS a wonderful... read more

Always something new! So, lots of folks think that Norman Rockwell is very middle America and humdrum. Not so. A very nuanced view of the artist and his work PLUS a wonderful overview of the work of Roz Chast , one of my favorite cartoonists.

An American giant, well worth the one hour visit. His work is so attractive to Americans- the nostalgia of his paintings strikes a chord in everyone. His colors and subject matter warms the heart and stimulates the mind. A must visit if you are in the area.

Getting to see the work of Norman Rockwell up close was a special experience. The museum is very professional, top notch, well funded - staff are friendly. The day we were there the place was very busy, but not too much so. Seeing the photos and models used by Rockwell was enlightening. We also enjoyed seeing inside his studio, which... More

This is a gem and so interesting. Small but great paintings by an American icon. We paid extra for headset and it was worth every penny. We also bought s combined ticket to see this and the Clark allow two days so you can enjoy the art in both

Lovely setting to learn more about Norman Rockwell and see a large number of his works. His studio has been moved to this lovely setting overlooking hills and valleys of the Berkshires. Saturday Evening Post covers include his imagined New England scenes, as well as portraits of Presidential candidates including JFK

Breathtaking vistas, Rockwell's works, and his amazing studio are what you can find. It is a wonderful way to spend an hour or two. While it is not an all day event, it is wonderful and should be seen and experienced over and over. The Museum docents were amazing and their wealth of knowledge was invaluable and added to our...

I have been wanting to visit this Museum for years. My children have finally reached the double digit mark and I decided to try it out. They were not thrilled when we arrived but enjoyed ringing the old school bell on the way to the entrance. When we visited (August 2015) Roz Chast art was on exhibit. I like Norman... More

If you go to Stockbridge and you don't go to this museum, then you missed an experience of a lifetime. I have to admit that I liked Rockwell, I admired his work, but didn't think too much about it beyond that. After this museum, I can say that I LOVE Rockwell....he, well, he Rocks. I think it is all I... More

This is a fascinating museum whether you know anything about the artist or not. His entire collection of Saturday Evening Post covers are on display on the lower level and his last studio was moved from beside his house in Stockbridge to just across the garden from the museum. We attended one of the staff talks in the main gallery... More
