COA Bus Trip to the Rockwell Museum

The Worthington Council on Aging is sponsoring a bus trip to the Norman Rockwell Museum in Stockbridge on Friday, June 28, 2019.

Visit the museum, stroll the grounds and see Norman Rockwell’s studio. In addition to Rockwell’s works, the current special exhibition is titled “Woodstock to the Moon: 1969 Illustrated.” In celebration of Norman Rockwell Museum’s 50th Anniversary, we look back at the many ways illustrators portrayed news events and reflected popular culture in 1969.

Admission to the museum is free thanks to sponsorship by Highland Foundation’s “Free Fun Friday.”
