The Birmingham Museum of Art has a Norman Rockwell's America exhibit going on through 06 January. I saw it yesterday before the SEC Championship Game while the museum was less crowded (the Rockwell exhibit had a handful of patrons - there was no one in the other exhibits). I highly recommend seeing it to anyone in the area.

Bring your earbuds for your smartphone for the audio portion of the tour. They'll sell you a throwaway pair for a dollar if you forget, but you'll probably be much happier with your own.

Norman Rockwell never considered himself an artist. He thought if himself as an illustrator. He felt artist had meaning, emotions in their work. He was just trying to tell stories.

Look at this picture, and tell me he wasn't an artist:
