Norman Rockwell Museum will celebrate Independence Day Weekend with an all-American family day to be held from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, July 5.
Throughout the day, visitors will have the opportunity to meet Norman Rockwell’s former models, who will share their memories of posing for America’s favorite illustrator.
The day begins at 11 a.m. with an apple pie bake-off, created by Berkshire bakeries and judged by Rockwell models.
Various Rockwell models will also take part in a panel discussion about their experiences at 3:30 p.m., and sign copies of their prints throughout the day.
Other activities include a wiffle ball on the outdoor green at 2 p.m., and holiday-themed art activities held in the Museum classroom and on the outside terrace.
The family event is free for Museum members, or with regular Museum admission.
