"The Art And Wit Of Rube Goldberg" At Norman Rockwell Museum

Mar 1, 2019

The Norman Rockwell Museum presents "The Art and Wit of Rube Goldberg," an exhibition exploring the humorous illustrations of the visionary artist, who has become famous for the creative inventions bearing his name. The exhibit opens tomorrow and runs through June 9th.

The exhibition will offer a revealing look at Goldberg’s creativity through original comic strips from the 1930s, where the artist created his complicated machines, as well as later political cartoons and instructional materials from the Famous Artists School, which are now part of the permanent collection of Norman Rockwell Museum.

Norman Rockwell Museum Curator of Exhibitions Jesse Kowalski, organized the exhibition and joins us this morning as does Steve Gerberich, a mechanical sculptor inspired by Goldberg, who will talk about his process at tomorrow’s opening, followed by a “make and take” art workshop, where he will lead participants in the creation of their own Rube Goldberg Machines.
