Reinventing a cultural landmark
The Norton has outgrown its existing home, and must expand in order to continue making art accessible and engaging – accommodating growing audiences and the Museum’s ever-expanding collection. Through the vision of the Museum’s Trustees and internationally-renowned architectural firm Foster + Partners, The New Norton expansion will transform the entire 6.3 acre campus with a design that – like the Museum’s collection – is innovative, adventurous, and of superior quality.
Features of the expansion
The New Norton will significantly enrich the visitor experience, and redefine the Norton’s relationship with the City of West Palm Beach and Palm Beach County, while enhancing the Museum’s reputation on an international scale.
