Spielberg, Lucas Team Up for Rockwell Exhibit

WASHINGTON, D.C.—George Lucas and Steven Spielberg have collaborated before, as with their Indiana Jones movies, but now they’ve decided to pool their collections of Norman Rockwell art for an exhibit at the Smithsonian Institution.

"Telling Stories: Norman Rockwell From the Collections of George Lucas and Steven Spielberg" will present 50 drawings and paintings from the filmmakers’ private holdings. One of the exhibition's themes will be the links between Rockwell's art and the movies, which is what prompted both men to start their extensive collections, a Smithsonian curator says. The exhibit, which can be seen only at the Smithsonian, runs from July 2, 2010, through Jan. 2, 2011.
