(STOCKBRIDGE, Mass.) – Elvis Presley impersonator Joe Borelli and his band will perform songs from the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s in a tribute to the King and early rock ‘n’ roll at the Norman Rockwell Museum on Thursday, August 11, at 5:30pm, as part of the “Real or Imagined? Adventures in Visual Culture” Thursday night series of lectures and programs inspired by the museum’s newest exhibition, “Rockwell and Realism in an Abstract World” and the persuasive power of visual imagery in its many forms.
Visitors are invited to step back in time to mid-century America, when Elvis Presley energized popular music by blending influences from across color lines.
The event is free for museum members or included with museum admission. Reservations are suggested by contacting the Museum at 413.931.2221 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
