The Interfaith Council of The Thanks-Giving Foundation presents Jane Allen Petrick
The Interfaith Council of The Thanks-Giving Foundation will host Norman Rockwell historian Jane Allen Petrick as part of its continued Speaker Series. This event represents the Foundation’s partnership with Dallas Faces Race.
Petrick, the author of several books on topics ranging from biographies to work place issues, will speak on her enlightening narrative, Hidden in Plain Sight: The Other People in Norman
Rockwell’s America, which explores the motivation behind Norman Rockwell’s art and why he chose to incorporate people of color in his illustrations, highlighting his commitment to portray
multiculturalism. Though hidden in plain sight, Asian, African and Native Americans are present throughout Rockwell’s 4,000 illustrations.
There will be a reception and book signing following the lecture and Q&A.
