Norton Museum of Art Gala

On Saturday, February 4, 2017, the Norton Museum of Art held its annual gala in celebration of the first year of active construction for The New Norton expansion project designed by Foster + Partners. The Gala also signaled the opening of the Norton’s sixth annual RAW (Recognition of Art by Women) exhibition.  Hosted by the Norton Board of Trustees, the construction-themed evening of cocktails, dinner, and late-night dancing raised more than $650,000 in support of Museum exhibitions and programs.
