Norman Rockwell

This weekend Adam and I decided to head over to Stockbridge, Massachusetts to check out the Norman Rockwell Museum. The main reason for going to the museum was that the end of exhibit entitled 'Heroes and Villains - the Comic Book Art of Alex Ross' was fast approaching.  It was a pretty big exhibit full of paintings, drawings, computer graphics and actual costumes of various superheros (pretty much every superhero ever created was represented in some form or fashion).  But of course being the Norman Rockwell Museum also meant that many of Rockwell's works were on display - apparently the museum houses so many that the galleries are turned over every couple of months. 
The iconic Thanksgiving day painting!
This painting is apart of a larger exhibit on civil rights.

One of my favorite paintings in the museum - downtown Stockbridge at Christmas time!

Me and Superman!
After touring the museum we decided to head over to Great Barrington.  This is the second time we've gone to Great Barrington - in the fall we hiked Monument Mountain and then headed into town for lunch.  This go round it was MUCH colder, but still just as much fun!  We walked around for a while and then decided to eat at Gypsy Joynts again - this place is AWESOME!  Everything is local, made from scratch, the inside has the great decor and and the food is downright delicious!
Cute street in Great Barrington, MA.

Yum!  Burger on focaccia bread with sweet potato rounds!
I'm looking forward to our next day trip/adventure, but in the meantime its back to grind of work, snow, ice and freezing temperatures!
