An Election Day Tribute to Norman Rockwell

Norman Rockwell, Election Day“Election Day” by Norman Rockwell. October 30, 1948 cover of The Saturday Evening Post.

Today is Election Day in the United States; it is a day when Americans will flock to the polls and exercise their freedom to vote for their favorite political candidates.

Perhaps no other artist is more closely associated with depicting the freedom of the American spirit than Norman Rockwell. His illustrations evoke messages of family, equality, tolerance, love of country and imagination.

Much has been written about Norman Rockwell, but the best way to really experience his message is to look at his body of work. The following video segment shows a terrific montage of Rockwell’s famous cover illustrations for The Saturday Evening Post, all set to the swingin’ sounds of Benny Goodman, another American original. Please enjoy! (And remember to get out and vote!)
