STOCKBRIDGE — Known for its iconic Americana imagery, The Norman Rockwell Museum served as a fitting setting when the venue was transformed into a courtroom to welcome 20 new U.S. citizens.

The museum partnered with the Berkshire Immigrant Center in Pittsfield, the Berkshire Community College Adult Learning Program in Great Barrington and the Literacy Network of South Berkshire in Lee to host the annual naturalization ceremony last Friday, June 14.

Standing inside the museum’s “Private Moments for the Masses” exhibition hall, which provides a more behind-the-scenes look at the autobiographical aspects of Rockwell’s art, Judge Joan McMenemy greeted the 20 candidates for citizenship.
