Norton Museum of Art Reviews
This is an update on my review from 2016...our first visit since the renovations. As you approach the building from the parking lot across the street (so convenient!), you will see that the roof was c... more »
Nice mix of permanent "old school" art and then newer art, including photography, mixed media, modern, and other artistry. Attractive outside space, with sculptures. more »
Absolutely stunning, a beautiful museum intent on its mission to share art of all types and mediums in dynamic settings inside and out. My first trip was a private small tour group and our docent was nothing short of amazing. Her riveting stories about the pieces, the displays and the architecture allowed us to learn and admire so much in z short time. We enjoyed lunch on property with a unique film of art brought to life. Toured the gardens on my own. Love, love, love. Bought myself a membership and plan on visiting often.
The reopened Norton is a beautiful building. The entrance and the new floor and the new niceties are quite beautiful. The garden is pretty with statues however some of the sculptures are not that interesting. Now regarding the artwork at the Norton it’s basically the same artwork that was there before so there are about 10 famous pieces and and it seems that Norton tried to fill up the new empty spaces with progressive political “art”. Fortunately when I was there this weekend there was a special exhibit with works by Nick Cave and Lichtenstein -very worth seeing. The glass collection in the ceiling is very creative and worth seeing too. I am personally hoping that they acquire some real artwork to fill up their walls a bit better.
