The Ann Norton Sculpture Gardens in West Palm Beach is work in partnership with the Cultural Council for Palm Beach County to host “The Power and Pleasure of Artistic Place: Where Women Made History,” a special free exhibition on display at the Cultural Council’s Lake Worth Beach gallery to August 27, 2021.  “Where Women Made History,” is a nationwide campaign to identify, honor, and enhance places across the country where women have changed their communities and the world. This exhibition captures the spirit of the National Trust’s larger initiative.”

The showcase features 15 images of women artists at home, working in their studios, or on their travels, including images of artist Ann Weaver Norton. All the homes, studios, and landscapes presented are part of the Historic Artists’ Homes and Studios (HAHS) programpart of the National Trust for Historic Preservation. The images were curated by the Ann Norton Sculpture Gardens from its earlier “Artists at Home: Photography of Historic Artists’ Homes & Studios Program of the National Trust for Historic Preservation,” exhibition.

The Historic Artists’ Homes and Studios program is committed to safeguarding and deciphering the places where art was made. This is a coalition of independent museums which have come together to commemorate and explore creativity. The Ann Norton Sculpture Gardens was invited to be a part of Historic Artists’ Home and Studios in 2019. Since its establishment by the National Trust for Historic Preservation in 1999, H.A.H.S. is comprised of 48-member sites, in 22 states, and host one million guests each year.
