 Moderated by Ellen Roberts, Harold and Anne Berkley Smith Curator of American Art

The Norton Museum of Art celebrated its 80th anniversary on February 8, 2021. An exhibition, documenting some of the exceptional moments in the history of the Museum and pairing artworks with related archival materials is currently on view through June 13.

Please join this virtual public conversation focusing on the 1940s, the Norton Museum, and the Palm Beach County community the Museum served in that era when Ralph and Elizabeth Norton were integrally involved. Norton Museum of Art Director and CEO, Ghislain d’Humières, will welcome participants and guests before the conversation delves into the fascinating history of the area and its earliest cultural organizations. Moderated by Ellen Roberts, Harold and Anne Berkley Smith Curator of American Art, the discussion features Philip Rylands, President and CEO of the Society of the Four Arts; Marie Penny, Director of Archives, Preservation Foundation of Palm Beach (who organized the archival exhibition); and Rose Guerrero, Research Director at the Historical Society of Palm Beach County.
