Maggie Meiners: Rockwell Revisited

Presented by New England School of Photography at The Garner Center at the New England School of Photography

Maggie Meiners’ Rockwell Revisited is a contemporary look at cultural issues investigated by Rockwell nearly 75 years ago, the artist “examining whether the nostalgia of Rockwell’s work translates into our rapidly changing lifestyles and his very human tableaux can reflect this moment in time. “ As a child, Meiners recalls being captivated by Rockwell’s covers on the Saturday Evening Post; the depictions humorous and quintessentially American, highlighting iconographic caricatures of everyday life: the rebellious boy and the authoritative principal, the mailman, the town doctor, the exalted war hero returned safely home. Meiners’ fascinations with the past seem to help inform her understanding of what’s happening in America today: “As I continue to examine Rockwell’s work, I have noticed, for better or worse, that while sociological landscape has changed in many ways, there is much that remains the same.”
