$1 Million to Support Museum Programs and Exhibitions

Trustee Gilbert Maurer honored for his vision and leadership in spearheading the new norton expansion project and gifts of art initiative.   

Nearly 400 people attended the Norton Museum of Art’s annual Gala, and LUSH, the Gala after-party, on Feb. 3. The event honored Trustee Gilbert Maurer for his vision and leadership in spearheading The New Norton, the transformative expansion project designed by Foster + Partners; celebrated the final year of construction, and thanked donors to the capital campaign and members of the 21st Century Society, the Museum’s gifts of art initiative, which has received more than 60 new works of world-class art. The Gala raised more than $1 million for Museum education programs and exhibitions.
