Norton Museum of Art, currently undergoing a major expansion, is closing for an extended period of time to complete its interior redesign and to reinstall art that has been in storage for more than two years.

No need to fear, though. Your art craving can still be satisfied with museum programs continuing off site, primarily at Grandview Public Market in West Palm Beach. 

Programs at Grandview Public Market will include Family Art Pop-Up, a new museum program where children from ages 5 to 12, and accompanying adults, will have discussions about art in the Norton collection, followed by art-making workshops.

There will also be Curators’ Conversations, featuring museum curators who will preview exhibitions that are set to open in 2019, and Member Insights programs. These programs, which are for museum members only, will be led by Norton education and curatorial staff and will allow members to learn more about masterpieces in the Norton collection.

All programs are free, but advance registration is required. For more information, including specific dates and times, visit norton.org/grandview.

Norton Museum of Art will close on July 16, and will reopen to the public on Feb. 9, 2019, with a free day of activities and exhibitions. 

Before closing, the museum will celebrate the completion of The New Norton structure and the reinstalling of art with Art After Dark on July 12, from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. The museum will also present its annual Bastille Day celebration from noon to 5 p.m. on July 14.
