Description

Tufts Alumni Palm Beach cordially invites you to a private tour of the Norton Museum of Art followed by lunch at Grato.

Since its founding in 1941, The Norton Museum of Art has grown and evolved to become one of Florida's major cultural institutions. The Museum is internationally known for its distinguished permanent collection featuring American Art, Chinese Art, Contemporary Art, European Art, and Photography. Its masterpieces of 19th century and 20th century painting and sculpture include works by Brancusi, Gauguin, Matisse, Miró, Monet, Picasso, Davis, Hassam, Hopper, Manship, O'Keeffe, Pollock, and Sheeler.

The tour will include the current exhibition "Earth Works: Mapping the Anthropocene" by Justin Brice Guariglia as well as some permanent collection works, which covers American, European, Chinese, Photography, and Contemporary collections. Total duration will be around 50 minutes. Lunch will follow.

We ask that the group gather in the Museum lobby, by the Visitors Service desk as this is where the tour will begin.

Parking at the Museum is available across the street on Dixie Highway next to the traffic light and is free.

Grato is .4 miles away from the Museum. For those who prefer to drive, there is a parking lot at the restaurant, which is free.

Space is limited; please sign up online by Tuesday, September 12.
