Norton Museum of Art Undergoes $100 Million Transformation

The Norton Museum of Art in West Palm Beach, Florida has reopened after a three-year, $100 million expansion and transformation designed by celebrated architect Lord Norman Foster. The 6.3-acre campus has added 35 percent more exhibition space, nearly 50 percent more education space, and Foster + Partners–designed public gardens featuring sculptures by Keith Haring, George Rickey, and Mark di Suvero. At the dramatic new entrance to the museum, which first opened in 1941, is Claes Olderburg’s monumental sculpture, Typewriter Eraser Scale X.

Other new offerings include a restaurant; a 210-seat, state-of-the-art auditorium; a 3,600-square-foot, 43-foot-tall Great Hall; and an artist-in-residence program in restored historic houses south of the museum’s garden.
