STOCKBRIDGE, Mass. (WWLP) – A Norman Rockwell painting has inspired a viral image of Kamala Harris.
You have probably seen the image on social media.
The little girl depicted in the VP-elect’s shadow is Ruby Bridges,’ the first black girl to attend an all-white-elementary school in New Orleans.
It’s a spinoff of Norman Rockwell’s “The Problem We All Live With.” 22News spoke with Laurie Norton Moffatt, Director/CEO of Norman Rockwell Museum, about the significance of the viral photo.
She said,” Using Rockwell as a marker, a symbolic marker, an image marker of this great march to women’s equity and equity for people of color. So it was really a thrilling moment to see such a beautiful image created by a new young designer today.”
The original Ruby Bridges’ painting is now on display at the Norman Rockwell Museum in Stockbridge. Visitors of the museum are encouraged to purchase tickets beforehand.
