Iconic Collaboration: NFTs Bring Norman Rockwell’s Art to the Digital Age

In a joint statement on Wednesday, the Norman Rockwell Museum and the Rockwell Family announced the beginning of a multi-part series supported by NFT that will give collectors access to several digital and tangible works by the late artist, including several never-before-published photos and process artworks from the Norman Rockwell archives.

This series, “Studio Sessions: The Norman Rockwell Collection,” is the Rockwell estate’s first excursion into NFTs. It was created in association with Iconic, a digital platform that helps established art institutions test out cutting-edge technology. A similar group of NFTs were made available on the Ethereum network earlier this year thanks to a collaboration between Iconic and the Jackson Pollock Studio.

On November 1, “Studio Sessions” will be made available on the Iconic website. Details on the specific pieces that will be included in the collection won’t be released until then. Although the price for each NFT has not yet been disclosed, it will be possible to buy them with a credit card or with Ethereum.

The Norman Rockwell Museum’s primary goals of ensuring public access to the artist’s works, encouraging the next generation of illustrators, and supporting the Norman Rockwell Family’s management of the artist’s legacy will all benefit from the sale’s proceeds.

Rockwell, an American painter who passed away in 1978, was praised by critics and the general public for his depictions of common American life and society in the twentieth century.

There will be glimpses inside the tens of thousands of preparatory sketches, photo shoots, drawings, and painted colour studies that went into each of Rockwell’s paintings in “Studio Sessions”. Each episode of the series will be titled “Session,” and each NFT from the collection will include a corresponding, limited-edition, museum-quality print. Each “Session” will centre on a certain, well-known Rockwell picture.

“We see our entry into the world of digital editions as a new way to carry forward and deepen our crucial cultural work to preserve, present, and champion Norman Rockwell and illustration art. This project advances our commitment to meaningful and artistically rich innovation.” Norton Moffatt, director of the Rockwell Museum, concluded.
