I loved seeing all the Norman Rockwell paintings and the comments but the highlight for me was hearing Mr. Donald Fisher tell the story of how he became the model of the young man in the painting, BREAKING HOME TIES. He also told us about how the original painting was misplaced when the purchaser ( another artist) painted a copy and hid the original.

Was a nice view but it was much better when the Exhibit was in it's own bldg. in Arlington. Better layout and awesome host was there too

Best display of pictures with comments I've ever seen. It is obvious the Arlington Community and Norman Rockwell had a deep connection.

Having moved from its home in the old firehouse to the Sugar Shack some things have changed. There is a huge display of magazine covers produced by Rockwell as well as a gift shop area with prints, magnets, and other items.

I enjoyed learning more about Norman Rockwell and his paintings - and very local models! I did not know about so many of his themed paintings
