Now through January 9, 2011, the Ward Melville Historical Organization is presenting an exhibit by famed artist Norman Rockwell (February 3, 1894 – November 8, 1978) a 20th-century American painter and illustrator. His works enjoy a broad popular appeal in the United States, where Rockwell is most famous for the cover illustrations of everyday life scenarios he created for The Saturday Evening Post magazine for more than four decades. Among the best-known of Rockwell’s works are the Willie Gillis series, Rosie the Riveter (although his Rosie was reproduced less than others of the day), Saying Grace (1951), and the Four Freedoms series. He is also noted for his work for the Boy Scouts of America (BSA); producing covers for their publication Boys’ Life, calendars, and other illustrations.
The WMHO Educational and Cultural Center offers fun filled programs for adults, seniors, and children, as well as, rental and meeting spaces.
