Herman Melville and Norman Rockwell, Together in the Berkshires

Who would have thought? An exhibit combining Norman Rockwell and Herman Melville!  It’s opening tomorrow night at Arrowhead, Melville’s home in Pittsfield, Massachusetts.  And that’s very close to Brook Farm Inn, in Lenox, Massachusetts.  The exhibit features the original color study of Rockwell’s mural showing Pittsfield in 1854, and includes clothing, tools, and other items found in the buildings in the mural.  Sounds like a great activity for Memorial Day Weekend, or any time this spring and summer.
