"We're expecting this to be a very popular exhibition," says curator Kevin Murphy.
Paintings are in place, straight from the brush of Norman Rockwell.
"It's a spectacular group of Rockwell's images from his very early, to his very late work," Murphy says.
Crystal Bridges latest exhibit opens Saturday, and runs through May, making it the second time a traveling exhibit will be on display at the museum since it opened.
"We're expecting 100,000 people to see it," Murphy says.
"These are all images that speak to Americans' hope for better lives."
Many of the Norman Rockwell paintings include self-portraits and pictures of family life.
As a matter of fact, one of Norman Rockwell's own family members is in Arkansas for the first time, for the opening of this exhibit.
"I am his granddaughter," Daisy Rockwell says as she describes her grandfather's works.
She is actually an artist herself, making her first trip to the natural state for the opening of her grandfather's exhibit.
"I think he would be so pleased to see himself in real art museums now that he's been brought into the fold because these are not sketches, these are huge oil paintings," Rockwell says.
"It's really a serious body of work and I think it's being recognized that way now."
