Garden Gates Exhibit Opens at the Norman Rockwell Museum

Besides having an incredible collection of iconic paintings, the Norman Rockwell Museum has an incomparable park-like setting. On Thursday July 10, the museum had a fund-raising garden party to celebrate the installation of two-dozen fantastical garden gates designed by artists for “In Full Bloom,” which is spread across the lush landscape. Several guests wisely brought their children who seemed enchanted by the astonishing variety of gates (many of which are for sale.) On July 12, from 3 - 5 PM, the museum will host another reception where the public can meet the participating artists.
