Fragile Freedoms: Maggie Meiners Revisits Rockwell
February 6–June 13, 2021

This thought-provoking photography exhibition reimagines the iconic work of early to mid-century painter and illustrator Norman Rockwell through the lens of modern America. With stunningly vivid detail, Maggie Meiners’s carefully constructed photographs turn nostalgia on its head and rework Rockwell’s familiar imagery to address contemporary issues including racism, sexuality, gender roles, and the impact of technology. 

While the social climate in our country has changed dramatically in the 60 years between Meiners and Rockwell, comparisons of these two bodies of work illustrate that people’s desires and fears often stay the same.

We realize that our freedoms, are indeed, fragile.
