The Norman Rockwell Museum in Stockbridge, Massachusetts broke ground on the site of their new building for the museum in April of 1991. This building included an auditorium, a library, studios, classrooms, archive storage, and galleries and it was designed by Robert A.M. Stern, an architect from New York. Festivities were held to celebrate the building's construction.

Norman Rockwell was an American artist and author who was most famous for his paintings of American culture and his cover illustrations for The Saturday Evening Post magazine and Boys' Life magazine. The museum in his name holds the largest collection of his art in the world.
