Norman Rockwell in the 1940s: A View of the American Homefront

ARTIST GALLERY

In 1942, Catalina Island was closed to tourism and shifted to support the American troops as a training center for the U.S. Maritime Service, the U.S. Coast Guard, the U.S. Army Signal Corps, and the Office of Strategic Service (O.S.S.).

Today, we give our respects to those who have fallen in the service to this great country. In honor of their sacrifice, we are pleased to announce that in 2022, the 80th anniversary of Catalina's involvement in WWII, we will be hosting "Norman Rockwell in the 1940s: A View of the American Homefront”.
