Spend an Afternoon with Norman Rockwell’s Models
September 18 @ noon - 4 p.m.
Norman Rockwell Museum welcomes home Dick Clemens and Eddie Locke, the original models for Norman Rockwell’s classic 1958 painting “The Runaway,” for an afternoon of family activities.
Clemens and Locke will talk about what it was like to pose for Rockwell and share their memories of living in Stockbridge in the late 1950s, where the artist was a neighbor. Special gallery talks about “The Runaway” and other iconic works will be held, as well as a print signing with the two models.
Visitors will also have the opportunity to try their own hand at posing for the picture, in a special “Runaway”-inspired lunch counter created by Lt. Thomas McNulty. The afternoon is free with regular Museum admission.
