Beginning on June 16th, 2017, West Palm Beach artist Rene Gibson undertook a project the entire sportfishing and art community has been watching intensely since then.

The Norton Museum of Art was founded in 1941 by Ralph H Norton and his wife Elizabeth. Norton was an industrialist in Chicago who headed the Acme Steel Company. The museum came about because him and his wife used to collect items and art to decorate their home.

The couple retired in 1935 and began spending more time in Palm Beach County. Not knowing what to do with their giant art collection and sculptures they decided to create their own museum in West Palm Beach.
