Celebrating the Norton: Eighty Years features a selection of acquisitions and archival materials that tells the story of the Norton Museum including never-before-seen documents, photographs, and highlights from the collection. It identifies turning points in the Museum’s history and some of the key figures who helped to shape it. This exhibition is the result of the research completed by the Museum’s first Archivist, Marie Penny, who has assembled significant discoveries, which will be alongside works from the collection representing key acquisitions. The Norton's anniversary year is an exciting opportunity to look back with pride on eighty years of distinguished history and ahead with the determination to continue to serve the community of Palm Beach County and beyond for many years to come.
