Aired on Wednesday, February 21st.

On this installment of StudioTulsa, we learn about a new exhibition at Gilcrease Museum; "Norman Rockwell: Behind the Camera" is the first exhibition to explore in depth the famous illustrator's richly detailed study photographs, which he used, quite carefully, as reference points for his iconic paintings. "Norman Rockwell: Behind the Camera" -- which is on view at Gilcrease Museum through June 10th -- reveals a crucial if little-known aspect of Rockwell's creative process, and thereby encourages us to look at his artistry in new ways. Our guest is Stephanie Haboush Plunkett, the deputy director and chief curator of the Norman Rockwell Museum in Stockbridge, Mass.
