Norton Museum Reopens With Impressive Improvements

You’ll Want to Visit Immediately!

If you haven’t seen The Norton lately, you just haven’t seen The Norton. On February 9, West Palm Beach’s venerable art museum reopened with a great deal of fanfare and excitement. The culmination was a ribbon cutting that revealed all of the museum’s exciting new features. Top of the list is more exhibition space. This extra room will allow the museum to display more of their permanent collection. I’ve always loved visiting the museum and will be glad to enjoy seeing more of it. It’s sad to think of these spectacular works being warehoused, where no one can enjoy their beauty. The space will also be used for special exhibits, which will also allow the museum to expand their schedule. Finally, they will be able to dedicate space to their outstanding photography collection.

But the museum’s increased gallery space is only one feature of the transformation. As South Floridians, we love to enjoy our spectacular weather, and now The Norton will be a great place to soak in the sun. The museum added new public gardens designed by well-regarded architect, Lord Norman Foster. These lush grounds feature 14 modern sculptures by top artists, including Keith Haring and George Rickey.

Other elements of the museum to be upgraded include creating a dramatic, new entrance with a memorable Claes Oldenburg sculpture and increasing the facility’s education space by 50%.

But this is only one of the fascinating exhibits at the newly-reopened museum. So spend an afternoon strolling through the various galleries and get lost in its beauty. We’re lucky to have this growing artistic treasure here, in our midst.
