Norton Ann Sculpture Gardens, West Palm Beach (must see)
Established by Ann Weaver Norton in 1977, the objective of the garden is to allow visitors to enjoy the artist’s work and to learn about her life. Patrons are encouraged to explore and to ask many questions. In addition, the works of other artists, such as Rene von Richthofen, Dennis O’Kain, Andrè Masson, Austin Manchester, and John James Audubon, are featured. There are also guest lectures on the works of artists such as Ansell Adams.
There are many activities that children will enjoy at the gardens. One of the highlights of the garden that everyone will enjoy is the annual Festival of the Trees. The Read-Write-Recite, Egg Hunt, Earth Days at the Gardens, Halloween in the Gardens, Literacy Days, Story Times, Writing Workshops, and the Little Explorers Summer Program are some of the programs developed specifically for children.
The garden is open Wednesday through Saturday from 10 am to 4 pm. Those wishing to schedule student tours or workshops should do so three weeks in advance. The garden was added to the U.S. National Register of Historic Places in 1990. The location is popular among the locals for weddings, professional photos shoots and private events.
