We got a copy of American Mirror: The Life and Art of Norman Rockwell, the new biography by Deborah Solomon, in the mail last week. The book has been sitting around the office ever since, passively inspiring emotions in Stranger staff. First, it inspired a rant about Rockwell's total pointlessness. Then it inspired a counter-argument that Rockwell was a propagandist, but a talented propagandist. That kicked off an argument about whether propaganda is art, whether it's even possible to love or loathe Rockwell, and how much technical skill is on display in his work. Nobody, it seems, can let Norman Rockwell just sit there. How about you?
