See One of the Most Impressive Sculpture Gardens in the World When You Take This Tour
Ann Norton Sculpture Gardens is home to one of the rarest and unparalleled collections of palms and cycads in the country. It is indeed a rare gift to experience the monumental, silent, mysterious sculptures created in situ by Ann Norton over a period of 15 years. So, come join neighbors and friends in touring the gardens on Saturday, December 28th, starting at 10:00 a.m.
The Ann Norton Sculpture Gardens comprise the former residence of sculptor Ann Weaver Norton (1905–1982), the widow of Ralph Hubbard Norton. The house is listed in the National Register of Historic Places, and the two-acre property, featuring a collection of 250 species of tropical palms, lies near downtown West Palm Beach on the Intracoastal Waterway.
Displayed throughout the house, studio and gardens are more than 100 works by the artist, including nine monumental sculptures, eight in brick and one in granite. The Gardens were designed by Ann Norton and Sir Peter Smithers. The largest tract of garden containing the great brick sculptures is designed in a natural, unmanicured style. The experience of coming across Norton’s mysterious monoliths as surprises in their lush green jungle-like setting is akin to discovering another world.
The Ann Norton Sculpture Gardens, Inc. is an IRS-recognized 501(c)(3) operating foundation established in 1977 by Ann Weaver Norton. The organization is devoted to exhibiting works of other artists, preserving the founder’s studio and displaying her monumental sculptures in a secluded urban preserve where a notable collection of rare palms is continually being developed.
The Ann Norton Sculpture Gardens' mission is to enrich lives with nature, art, and history. Admission is free for members, $10-$15 for non-members, and $7 for children 5 and older. Children under 5 are free and must be accompanied by an adult. For more information, visit www.ansg.org or call (561) 832-5328.
