Norman Rockwell's legacy

March 1985
Yankee;Mar85, Vol. 49 Issue 3, p68
Artist Norman Rockwell's legacy is clearly alive in two of his `hometowns' Arlington, Vermont, and Stockbridge, Massachusetts, but in very different ways. In Arlington, the chief drawing card is one of Rockwell's former models. In Stockbridge, the museum is more esoteric, featuring a unique collection of Rockwell's original canvases.
