    It seems fitting for such an exhibit to come to the DAI. I’m really looking forward to it.

    I love visiting the Dayton Art Institute to see “Dinner at the Casino” by Gaston La Touche.

  • Keeley Moore - October 26, 2011 @ 11:53 am

    I love Freedom From Want—My mom has a copy hanging in her dining room and it always reminds of Thanksgiving and the love of family.

  • Jes - October 26, 2011 @ 12:12 pm

    The Problem We All Live With ! Great & meaningful piece. I love when artists use their power for good!

  • nicky moore - October 26, 2011 @ 1:21 pm

    I can’t wait to take my kids for their first time to dai. I think they will love it and hopefully be inspired!!

  • Julia - October 26, 2011 @ 2:22 pm

    I’ve been visiting the DAI since I was a little kid. I never get bored exploring, whether it’s checking out the new exhibits or revisiting some old favorites. Can’t wait to introduce my daughter to the Rockwell exhibit!

  • Julie M. - October 26, 2011 @ 2:54 pm

    I’ve never been there but I would love to visit.

    My favorite piece by far is “Runaway”. I am always very affected by the overwhelming sense of nostalgia that Rockwell’s work exudes. His work remind me of a different time where life was lived differently. I love how his art transports me back and I lose all sense of the present and am completely absorbed into his pieces.

    When I was a child and we would go visit my grandma in Toledo, I would go through her stacks of The Saturday Evening Post just to look at the Norman Rockwell drawings!! After 30 years of living in the west, I went back for a visit to Dayton this month. A very close friend of mine, and a crush in highschool (1981), wanted to show me the Water Nymph at the Datyon Art Institute. We found her, and that is where he kissed me for the first time in 30 years! I will be going back at Christmas time and would love to win the tickets. Not to just see Norman Rockwell, but to get another kiss!

  • Carolyn - October 28, 2011 @ 10:33 am

    I don’t think I can pick just one favorite Norman Rockwell. :-) I guess the Thanksgiving dinner cover comes to mind first. This would be wonderful to be able to take my kids too. Thanks for the giveaway!

    Love the DAI! I have always enjoyed taking my girls there even when they were babies. The building itself is a work of art. :)

  • Charles Baerman - October 28, 2011 @ 3:36 pm

    I just love art and history.
