Ask an Atheist at Crocker Art Museum

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!

    Really sorry I couldn't make it. I'm just not full of energy in the wintertime (even in sunny Sacramento) and sometimes sign up for thiings and have to back out. If I were an animal, I would be one that hibernated!

      No worries, Zazie! A good afternoon nap is just the right thing sometimes! See you around... No hurry.

    Another fun day wearing one of my most extroverted
    and magnetic t-shirts. At the precaffeination session, two kindred folks saw the shirt, approached Mr. Shep and me. It was nice meeting friendlies at both locations.

    If you don't see us, you can text me at (530) 401-1241. It's a large museum, but we'll be there. I'll have "Ask an Atheist" t-shirts in my car nearby for $10, so we all can be visible, if you don't have one already.

    Parking: On-street parking meters bordering the Museum require quarters (except Sundays). A small parking lot is available next to the museum on 2nd Street and costs $1.50 per hour. A larger parking lot (Lot X) is located across the street, at the corner of 2nd and N Streets, and is a $10 flat rate for all day parking.

    I'm going even if others don't sign up, so feel free to make this a last minute decision - the event won't be canceled. I had the great advice a long time ago to always schedule things that I would love to do even if on my own, then no matter what, I get to enjoy myself. So, that's what I do. I look forward to viewing these Normal Rockwells. I used to own a coffee table book of his works (what ever happens to things over time - they must walk away!) Anyway, I'll be there, having a good time. Come if you can.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
