When in South Florida and looking for something slightly different to do on a Thursday evening, head on over to the Norton Museum of Art in West Palm Beach. The Norton Museum is hosting Art After Dark every Thursday evening between 5:00pm and 9:00pm.
With the Norton being open in the evening on Thursday nights, you may visit the galleries, appreciate the exhibits, art workshops, lectures and more. The evenings have a lively “happy hour” vibe through culture and entertainment.
