Steven James Petruccio in Exhibit

Steven James Petruccio's illustrations were recently part of the exhibition, "American Nostalgia: Contemporary artists and illustrators reinterpret the traditional themes ofNorman Rockwell" , in Fullerton, CA.. More than thirty years after his death, iconic American artist Norman Rockwell’s art is still enormously popular. This invitational group exhibition examined the enduring themes represented in the art of Norman Rockwell–patriotism, family and the American ideal. Steven's illustrations were created for magazines including Scholastic News.
