Posted by Lorea Thomson on Friday, March 9th, 2018 at 12:26pm.


When in South Florida and looking for something slightly different to do on a Thursday evening, head on over to the Norton Museum of Art in West Palm Beach. The Norton Museum is hosting Art After Dark every Thursday evening between 5:00pm and 9:00pm.

With the Norton being open in the evening on Thursday nights, you may visit the galleries, appreciate the exhibits, art workshops, lectures and more.  The evenings have a lively “happy hour” vibe through culture and entertainment.

The museum has a mix of contemporary art and art throughout the ages. It features over 7,000 works, with a concentration in American, European, and Chinese art as well as in contemporary art, photography and sculpture gardens.   

The museum will highlight Jean-Michel Basquiat and Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney on March 15, 2018 with the following schedule:
