An update on your support:
Thank you for your contribution to save Rockwell’s modern masterpieces. The campaign is off to a great start. Through your generosity, more than a quarter of the necessary funds have been raised.
In light of the global health emergency, you may not see us sharing this fundraiser on social media channels. We are focusing on addressing the needs of children who are out of school and a population of adults looking for uplifting ideas and things to do. The Virtual Museum at www.nrm.org is doing this vital work.
Know that the paintings you have supported are receiving the best care. Conservation will occur later this year when the paintings in the Four Freedoms exhibition return to Stockbridge. We look forward to sharing with you the results of your generosity.
In the meantime, the Museum needs your help now more than ever. We are asking you to partner with us to support the continuation of the work to provide services for children and isolated adults during this crisis. It will be hard, but we are committed to sustaining the Museum we all love, but we can’t do it alone. We know you are receiving many requests. If you can, please help today with a gift of any size. You can donate here, or on our website: www.nrm.org/join-support
You can preserve some of America’s most iconic artworks by making a gift today.
The Problem We All Live With, Rockwell’s painting of Ruby Bridges walking to her newly desegregated elementary school in New Orleans, is the Museum’s most requested painting. It has been viewed by over 10 million people. Its portrayal of the young Ruby, walking past hurled tomatoes and a harsh racial epithet scrawled on a wall captures the essence of the tense scene as it unfolded in the civil rights era of the 60’s. The painting, along with famed American artist Norman Rockwell’s Four Freedoms has been on a two-year, seven-city tour. The paintings are now ready for periodic conservation, which will ensure some of Rockwell’s best known works will be available to future generations.
Be an art conservator. It’s up to you to preserve The Problem We All Live With and other paintings returning to Norman Rockwell Museum after their tour. You can be the one to assure that Rockwell’s masterpieces, which speak to us as powerfully today as they did in his time, will receive the attention they need now.
