No Norman Rockwell Museum in Wisconsin
The Norman Rockwell Museum in Wisconsin no longer exists. The Museum of Norman Rockwell Art in Reedsburg, Wisconsin was another fine museum. Alas, it is no longer.
As best as I can determine, the museum never owned any original Norman Rockwell paintings. However, the almost 4,000 original magazine covers, calendars, story illustrations and advertisements on display would have made quite an impression on their own. A visitor to this part of Wisconsin could have spent the better part of a day enjoying this Rockwell museum.
In addition to the original paper publications, other memorabilia were on display as well.
Admission tickets were very reasonably priced: Adult -$6.00, Senior over 65 -$5.00, and Child 13-18 -$3.00.
When in Reedsburg, the museum was a little over a block off East Main St (33-23). Turn south on South Park Street at the 300 block and continue past the Vine Street intersection. The museum was just past the intersection on the left. Stop by and mourn its passing.

Norman Rockwell Quotes:
I'll never have enough time to paint all the pictures I'd like to.
No man with a conscience can just bat out illustrations. He's got to put all his talent and feeling into them!
Some people have been kind enough to call me a fine artist. I've always called myself an illustrator. I'm not sure what the difference is. All I know is that whatever type of work I do, I try to give it my very best. Art has been my life.
Right from the beginning, I always strived to capture everything I saw as completely as possible.
The secret to so many artists living so long is that every painting is a new adventure. So, you see, they're always looking ahead to something new and exciting. The secret is not to look back.
I can take a lot of pats on the back. I love it when I get admiring letters from people. And, of course, I'd love it if the critics would notice me, too.
You must first spend some time getting your model to relax. Then you'll get a natural expression.
