Rockwell Museum wins Humanities Medal

Also, curator Linda Pero retires

The Norman Rockwell Museum in Stockbridge, Massachusetts, was awarded the National Humanities Medal at the White House on Nov. 17. President George W. Bush presented the medal to Rockwell Museum Director Laurie Norton Moffatt (pictured at left).

The museum was one of nine recipients of this year’s medals, which honor “individuals or groups whose work has deepened the nation’s understanding of the humanities, broadened our citizens’ engagement with the humanities, or helped preserve and expand Americans’ access to important resources in the humanities.”

In other Rockwell Museum news, Linda Pero (pictured left), curator of Norman Rockwell collections, retired in October after 24 years at the museum.
