Illustration Research Center Proposed for Stockbridge

In what may turn out to be a Valentine's gift to illustration scholarship, The Norman Rockwell Museum is considering turning the former Old Town Hall of Stockbridge, Massachusetts into a study center for illustration.

The Town Hall building is currently not in use but it would need a major overhaul indoors to incorporate the Museum's archives, study gallery, library, reading room, and prep space for traveling exhibitions.

Exhibits and public events would remain at the current museum location. The plan would require raising a lot of funds and still awaits approvals.

Hopefully they don't try to raise funds by selling off the collection!
