No I don’t live a Norman Rockwell Life

This past weekend we took the kids to see the Norman Rockwell exhibit at the King Prussia Mall, PA. It is a interactive walk through show. That is a great for the kids, because it is Ok to touch. It starts with a 4 ½ minute video explain the artist. They you can walk through the painter most famous covers from the Saturday Evening Post. There are full size cars the kids can sit in and a soda shop fountain where you can sit next to Rockwell's famous patrons. My kids loved the real vintage phones set up with a switch board. My kids spent time calling each other. When we reached the my kids want to go back in and play some more. I loved the fact that it was a local mall bring art to the masses. The cost was 5.00 for adults and free for kids under 12. So a deal to boot. If you live in the Philly this is worth an hour well spent.

So if you are in PA  check out The most beloved characters and scenes of Norman Rockwell's portfolio are brought into three dimensions on the Lower Level of King Prussia Mall -The Plaza (near Rite Aid) October 29th - March 14th.

I love Norman Rockwell! It's really cool that your museum has an exhibit about him.
