Let art lovers know that atheists love Norman Rockwell as much as they do. We will proudly wear our bright blue "Ask an Atheist" t-shirts as we wander this exhibit of Rockwell's classic, humorous captures of Americana. You can purchase a t-shirt at the event from Judy, $10. (Admission to the Art Museum is also $10, by the way, and well worth it.)
We usually walk in pairs. If you are asked a question you don't know, just say you don't know. It's not about pushing atheism, it's about being visible and available, and showing our smiling faces. And in this case, our love of everyday humor in classic art. Meet in the front lobby at 1:00, stay until 2:30, or as long or short as you like. If you aren't chatty, you can walk with someone who does enjoy talking. No worries. Mainly enjoy the artwork as you help our cause by being a visibly normal person who happens to be atheist.
"This exhibition celebrates the full range of Norman Rockwell's artwork, including rarely circulated works from the collection of the Norman Rockwell Museum in Stockbridge, Massachusetts. Included in the presentation are original oil paintings of some of his most famous illustrations, drawings, war bond posters, and numerous covers that Rockwell created for The Saturday Evening Post over nearly five decades. In addition to the artworks on view, personal correspondence and archival photographs offer insight into the life of one of the country's most beloved illustrators." See you there!
