Explore and behold the astounding beauty of the new exhibit “Gateways to Modernism” at the critically acclaimed Ann Norton Sculpture Gardens.
Bring your friends and family or just take yourself on an artistic journey through the halls of the Ann Norton Museum newest exhibit on display now until November 26, 2017. The exhibit offers guests a collection of stunning works under the theme of modernism. Everything from Ann’s sketches to maquettes (unfinished sculptures) to completed and wondrous sculptures and paintings can be seen on display here.
Not only is “Gateways to Modernism” a deep and personal expression of Ann’s interpretations of art, but also it embodies and meaningful history. Not even 20 years of age, a young Ann, left her humble roots of Alabama for New York City. Her dream was to study art and in particular the world of modern art, which was and still is greatly dominated by male artists. Through her travels, studies and raw talent, Ann’s works gained more and more attention even though it was a time of modern art superstars like Thomas Hart Benton. Unlikely, for a young female artist in the realm of modern art, Ann Weaver Norton beat all odds. Her name and art works are some of the best and most accredited American art pieces in the world.
Do not miss your chance to explore the works of one of the world’s best artists. The Ann Norton Sculpture Gardens are only done justice when witness in person. Her art and her purpose grants guests an experience unlike anything you’ve ever seen. And for Palm Beach natives, you have the luxury of beholding some of the world’s best art in your own backyard.
