Norman Rockwell Sculpture.

Norman Rockwell Sculpture

A sculpture of 20th century painter and illustrator Norman Rockwell located in the Village Center. The sculpture can be rotated, and the "painting" on Rockwell's easel can be changed to mimic what's visible in the direction he is facing.

[zerje, 09/29/2018]

The lifelike, full-color sculpture was unveiled in 2012. Although Greendale promotes itself as an idyllic Norman Rockwell-esque town, he never visited or painted it.
