Steig Show Gala Opening at Norman Rockwell Museum
Over 200 guests and admirers visited Norman Rockwell Museum on Saturday, June 12, to attend the opening of the exhibition “William Steig: Love & Laughter.” Also in attendance at the opening/dance party were the artist’s wife Jeanne Steig, his daughter Maggie, granddaughters Melinda and Lucy, and other family members. Bowey the Clown entertained young and old with his balloon puppets (clowns were a recurring theme in Steig’s work); and Wanda Houston, Charlie Tokarz and friends delighted the crowd with big band jazz favorites. The exhibition will be on view through October 31. Photos by Jeremy Clowe. Courtesy of Norman Rockwell Museum. All rights reserved.
