With the weather these days, Northeast and Mid-Atlantic

Norman Rockwell (American, 1894–1978). The Tattoo Artist, 1944. Oil on canvas, 43 1/8 x 33 1/8 in. (109.5 x 84.1 cm). Brooklyn Museum, Gift of the artist, 69.8. Image courtesy of Brooklyn Museum.

dwellers are more likely to be trudging through heaps of snow, slipping on ice, or shuffling through slush than “hopping” anywhere.  Nevertheless, there are many great exhibitions to check out this winter.  Here’s a list of just a few that sound particularly interesting.
