The Norton Museum of Art is a longtime favorite of museum visitors in West Palm Beach. The newly transformed Museum features a diverse collection of art, special exhibitions, engaging talks, tours, concerts, and programs for adults and children.
The Norton has eight new exhibitions, 12,000 square feet of gallery space, new classrooms, a restaurant that overlooks a new sculpture garden that used to be a parking lot, and a 210-seat auditorium.
In response to the current COVID-19 situation and following guidance from local, state, and federal officials regarding measures to protect public health, the Norton Museum of Art closed to the public at 10 p.m. tonight (March 13) after its Art After Dark program and will remain closed through March 31. In the interest of ensuring the well-being of our staff, volunteers, and visitors, we will continue to evaluate the situation as it evolves. All activities during this period, including offsite outreach and docent programs, will be canceled or rescheduled. Please consult norton.org, for updates.

Now – June 28, 2020
Presenting a concise survey of the radical work of Robert Rauschenberg, this exhibition traces the arc of the artist’s career, from the 1950s to the 1990s, through his pioneering use of media and imagery from popular culture. The exhibition is organized around the transformative acquisitions the Whitney has made.
Rudin Prize for Emerging Photographers

The Rudin Prize was inaugurated in 2012 through the collaboration of collector and Norton supporter Beth Rudin DeWoody and the Norton’s William and Sarah Ross Soter Curator of Photography. Every other year, a panel of internationally renowned artists nominate emerging photographers whose work is on the leading edge of contemporary photo-based art.

George Cohen: Artist of the Chicago Avant-Garde
Now – September 6, 2020
This exhibition celebrates collector Ellen Stern’s recent gift of five works by 20th-century artist George Cohen. The five pieces in this show demonstrate his concern with issues such as the tension between two and three-dimensional space and the use of unconventional materials, interests that ally him with contemporaries throughout the country.
Art After Dark
This free weekly program offers an eclectic array of programs that changes every week! View an exhibition, attend a talk, participate in an art activity, enjoy a performance, concert, or film, sip, and dine or sip cocktails in the Museum’s elegant new bar and restaurant.
