“garden with sculptures”

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 2.16 acre property; featuring a collection of 300 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. Now operated as a private foundation supported by an open public membership and an elective Board of Trustees; the Gardens offer a schedule of exhibitions by recognized artists in an intimate residential setting. The Ann Norton Sculpture Gardens; Inc. is an IRS-recognized 501(c)(3) operating foundation established in 1977 by the prominent sculptor Ann Weaver Norton (1905-1982) as an independent and locally unaffiliated entity. 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.
