Rockwell show total: 121,000 | Rock Candy

Rockwells The Problem We All Live With.
  • Rockwell's "The Problem We All Live With."

Arkansans love Norman Rockwell. (I especially love the Rockwell in the image above.)

During its 11-week run, the exhibit "American Chronicles: The Art of Norman Rockwell" drew more than 121,000 people to Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in Bentonville, the museum said today — more than any other visitors at any of the 12 museums it traveled to before coming to Arkansas. (Around 100 of them traveled to the show on the Arkansas Times' artbuses.)

Next up: "Angels & Tomboys: Girlhood in 19th Century American Art," 72 masterworks from the Newark Museum, and "Surveying George Washington," historical documents, both June 29-Sept. 30.
