An American Thanksgiving

An American Thanksgiving

Looking at how art influences and reflects our world.  One thing art does is acts as a time capsule of our culture and times.  Norman Rockwell was an American artist that took iconic scenes in the country, capturing a moment or scene that incapsulates American culture.  Rockwell was criticized for being to commercial, his art too cartoon like, but he was very popular and he served a purpose of chronicling kernels of American culture.  For some it seemed idolized and for other nostalgic, but loved by the general public.  Approaching our Thanksgiving I thought we would give the rest of the world a window in to an American Thanksgiving through art and history.
