Like other venues throughout the state, The Norman Rockwell Museum in Stockbridge has moved its gallery online and is seeking submissions for a remote show titled “Home Is 2020.”

The future show is inspired by the current exhibit, “Finding Home: Four Artists Journeys” and the accompanying “Berkshire Immigrant Stories Project.” That show inspired a series of art-making workshops designed to explore the meaning of home to be led by Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts Professor Melanie Mowinski and her advanced design students, according to a press statement.

“We invite you to make art on the meaning of home while you are at home. And we hope you will share your work with us for inclusion and community building in an exhibition in the Virtual Norman Rockwell Museum,” the statement says. “Engaging together in art-making now as a means for observing and noticing the emotions and nuances of the time will help sustain and connect us. The virtual exhibit of art shared from around the globe will also become a window to look through and reflect on this moment in history.”

The submission deadline is June 1. Physical art can be mailed to: Norman Rockwell Museum Attn.: Mary Berle, Chief Educator, P.O. Box 308 Stockbridge, Mass. 01262. Digital art can be emailed to homeis2020@nrm.org or posted on Instagram using the hashtag #homeis2020.

The Virtual Norman Rockwell Museum, which features numerous online gallery shows and other digital content, including “Finding Home: Four Artists’ Journeys,” can be viewed at nrm.org/virtualmuseum.
