    The Ann Norton Sculpture Gardens comprise the former residence of sculptor Ann Weaver Norton (1905 -1982), the widow of Ralph Hubbard Norton. The house is listed in the National Register of Historic Places, and the 2.16 acre property, featuring a collection of 300 species of tropical palms, lies near downtown West Palm Beach on the Intracoastal Waterway.

    Displayed throughout the house, studio and gardens are more than 100 works by the artist, including nine monumental sculptures, eight in brick and one in granite. The Gardens were designed by Ann Norton and Sir Peter Smithers.  The largest tract of garden containing the great brick sculptures, is designed in a natural, unmanicured style. The experience of coming across Norton's mysterious monoliths as surprises in their lush green jungle-like setting is akin to discovering another world.

    Now operated as a 501 (c)(3)foundation supported by an open public membership and an elected Board of Trustees, the Gardens offer a schedule of exhibitions by recognized artists in an intimate residential setting.

    The Ann Norton Sculpture Gardens, Inc. is an IRS-recognized 501(c)(3) operating foundation established in 1977 by the prominent sculptor Ann Weaver Norton (1905-1982). The organization is devoted to exhibiting works of other artists, preserving the founder's studio and displaying her monumental sculptures in a secluded urban preserve where a notable collection of rare palms is continually being developed.
