Robot Nation: An Outdoor Installation for the 21st Century | Norman Rockwell Museum

"Butch" The Constructo Bot chewing on Nova
Last month I had the pleasure of traveling for the first time to the Norman Rockwell Museum in Stockbridge, MA with fellow Hudson Valley artists James Gurney, His wife Jeanette, Mary Sealfon, Kevin Ferrera, Susan Voss and her son.  Susan also brought along her little robot pal Nova for this special event. 

 Artists and craftspeople working in all media were invited to submit proposals for an exciting summer exhibition of sculptural robots, inspired by Blue Sky Studios’ blockbuster 2005 film Robots. Three-dimensional, weatherproof, outdoor robot submissions will be exhibited on the grounds of Norman Rockwell Museum through October 31st. 
If you’ve never seen a Norman Rockwell painting or a giant robot up close then you owe it to yourself to make the pilgrimage.

There is no photography allowed in the Blue Sky Exhibit

After a long day Nova needed to take an oil leak
