I saw this advertised in a book about Palm Beach so we thought we'd go look. My husband I were both amazed at how beautiful the gardens are and how interesting the sculpture. Exhibits change periodically. The day we visited, sculptures of guest exhibitors Todd McGrain and Sophie Ryder were interspersed among Ann Norton's mythic sculptures. Each of the artists... More

Owned by Ralph and Ann Norton it has been turned into a museum gallery and sculpture garden. Inside, you'll find exhibitions of both two & three dimensional works of art in multiple rooms that change several times during... More

We thought we might have had the wrong address given we were on a quiet residential street. The signage for the sculpture garden is very, very discreet so we assumed it was some kind of neighborhood restriction. However, it does add to the feeling of it being a private residence to which we are given "special access." The property is... More

I really appreciated not only Ann Norton's sculptures but those of Sophie Ryder and Todd McGrain's Lost Bird Project. I spent a good amount of time viewing Todd's prints/drawings and reading about his research on these extinct birds. The gardens themselves are amazing and full of unique trees and plants. You can wander the short paths to study the sculpture... More

We went last year and found it very interesting. We were not enthused by Ann Norton's sculptures but they are unique. This year there are 2 fresh exhibits - one sculptures of extinct birds and the other large sculptures of animals done in wire and an army of other materials - extraordinary.

Magical, classic 1930's Florida, great art in a captivating location. Kids would be bored. It's a must see!

Todd McGrain's sculptures bring lost North American birds to the Ann Norton Sculpture Gardens for his traveling ' Lost Bird Project'. The home is lovely the pathways and gardens are well maintained, and they let you bring Nitika on a leash with a bag. Added bonus lovely outside dinning.

Slightly interesting memorial of a fairly mediocre artist who most likely was coddled benefitting from the wealth of others.

The weather was great to visit this home containing a photographic art exhibit, then walking the sculpture garden of Ann Norton. Included on the grounds is her studio, where you can see how she created some of the sculptures. Very interesting with lots of plants and palm trees. Right along the Intercoastal, so a nice view in that direction.

Thank Jean M
