Historic Artists' Homes & Studios Virtual Road Trip: Ann Norton Sculpture Gardens
The Historic Artist Homes & Studios Virtual Road Trip is BACK in 2022! Join us to explore the unique creative spaces and art-making practices of six American artists.

Fueled by the James Castle House in Boise, Idaho, and the Historic Artists' Homes and Studios (HAHS) program of the National Trust for Historic Preservation, this six-part, monthly series ventures deep into the museums, homes, and preserved spaces that nurtured the creation of thousands of artworks.

Traveling from Malvern, Pennsylvania to West Palm Beach, Florida, as the second stop of this six-part virtual road trip, we'll tour the creative spaces of sculptor Ann Norton. As we venture into Norton’s tropical sanctuary, we’ll explore her larger-than-life sculptures nestled throughout her home and lush gardens. Nature lovers and art enthusiasts alike continue to find inspiration through the environment, exhibitions, and programs offered by the Ann Norton Sculpture Gardens.

This free, one-hour event will take place via ZOOM on May 19, 4 p.m. ET/1 p.m. PT. One registration is needed per household. Live American Sign Language (ASL) will be provided.

Ann Norton Sculpture Gardens (ANSG) was the home of American sculptor Ann Weaver Norton (1905-1982). ANSG is celebrating 45 years of preserving nature, art, and providing programming, exhibits, and events for visitors from around the world. ANSG is a two-acre sanctuary with Norton’s nine monumental sculptures, historic home and artist studio, and more than 250 species of rare palms and tropical plants. The nationally registered house was built in 1925 by renowned architect Maurice Fatio and in 1948 the artist studio, designed by Marion Sims Wyeth was added. In 1977, Ann Norton Sculpture Gardens was established.
