Contractors, Inc. was awarded the bid for construction of the park, to be completed in late October 2013.  Financing for the development and construction of Veterans Memorial Park was made possible by developer fees that are reserved for parks and recreational purposes.

Veterans Memorial Parkfeatures a display of flags from all branches the United States Armed Services, a central display of the American Flag, trellised seating areas, stage, and space for public events.  Members of the public who wish to honor a special veteran may make a contribution for a brick, bench, trellis, or tree that will be included in the park as a lasting tribute to their service.  In addition to its use for special events, such as Veterans Day and the Annual Holiday Tree Lighting, Veterans Memorial Park offers passive areas for individual reflection.

Norton announces 2014 - 2015 Special Exhibition schedule

The Norton Museum of Art announces a new  season of exciting special exhibitions that encompasses the breadth of the art world.A spectacular print exhibition spanning 500 years from Dürerto Picasso; an exhibition of British landscape paintings, including work by Gainsborough, Constable, and Monet; a century of groundbreaking fashion photography from the archives of Condé  Nast;  High Tea, an exhibition examining how that ritual globally influenced art and culture are all on the Norton’s calendar.  

 

The season also includes the fourth Recognition of Art by Women (RAW) exhibition, featuring the first solo exhibition of the work of Swedish sculptor Klara Kristalova outside of Sweden, and the second exhibition in the biennial, international Rudin Prize for Emerging Photographers, featuring four up-and-coming artists working on the leading edge of the art form.  The Rudin name shows up again in the exhibition, The Triumph of Love: Beth Rudin DeWoody Collects, showcasing highlights from DeWoody’s esteemed collection of contemporary art. The season culminates with the Norton-originated exhibition, Imaging Eden: Photographers Discover the Everglades, featuring the work of four international photographers and how they see one of the world’s great natural resources.   

 

For the fourth consecutive year, the Museum re-opens (after a two-week closing in September) with another new, dramatic lobby installation, this one by British artist Terry Haggerty.                                                

        

The special exhibition schedule is as follows:

 

New Lobby Installation by Terry Haggerty                                                                Tuesday, Sept. 23, 2014 – Sept. 2015

The fourth site specific artwork for the Norton Museum lobby is being created by Terry Haggerty (b.1970, British).  Working in the tradition of geometric abstraction, Haggerty’s vocabulary for his paintings and large installation for both private and public institutions emphasizes a restricted palette, creating a sense of depth through lines in a single color of varying widths in a repeated pattern.  Haggerty is composing a work inspired by the unusual dimensions of the Norton Museum Lobby, expanding far beyond the north wall. This is the fourth site specific installation generously supported by Vanessa and Anthony Beyer as part of their commitment to Contemporary Art at the Norton.

The Rudin Prize for Emerging Photographers                                                                               Thursday, Oct. 2, 2014 - Sunday, Jan. 11, 2015

Every other year, the Norton invites a panel of world-renowned artists to nominate emerging photographers whose work is on the leading edge of contemporary art and photography, but have not yet had a solo exhibition at a museum. The nominees share an exhibition. A separate panel of judges awards one of them the $20,000 Rudin Prize, named for the late New York City real estate developer Lewis Rudin.  This year’s nominators are: Thomas Demand (Germany), Adi Nes (Israel), Luis Gonzalez Palma (Guatemala), and Deborah Willis (USA). They respectively nominated: Miriam Böhm from Manheim, Germany; Rami Maymon from Tel Aviv; Renato Osoy from Guatemala City; and West African-born Delphine Fawundu from New York.

Works by old masters such as Dürer, Rembrandt, Goya, and Canaletto, will be displayed alongside those of modern masters such as Degas, Matisse, Picasso, and Cezanne.  The exhibition will be accompanied by a video demonstrating printmaking processes and texts describing the role prints held in society before the advent of photography. 

 

Coming into Fashion: A Century of Photography at Condé Nast                                  Thursday, Nov. 20, 2014 – Sunday, Feb. 15, 2015

In 1913, Condé Nast hired him in New York as a full-time photographer for Vogue, then Vanity Fair. Illustrating how fashion photography has evolved since de Meyer’s days, both in terms of subject matter and technique, the exhibition presents the work of Edward Steichen, Irving Penn, William Klein, Helmut Newton, Peter Lindbergh, Steven Meisel, Inez van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin, and Miles Aldridge, among others. This Exhibition has been organized by the Foundation for the Exhibition of Photography, Minneapolis/ Paris/ Lausanne.

 

Klara Kristalova: Turning into Stone                                            

Tuesday, Dec. 2, 2015 – Sunday, March 29, 2015                                                                  

Porcelain and stoneware sculpture and drawings by the Sweden based artist Klara Kristalova (b. 1967, Czechoslovakia) comprise the fourth Recognition of Art by Women (RAW) exhibition, a series dedicated to supporting women artists through the generosity of the Leonard and SophieDavis/ ML Dauray Arts Initiative. Hovering between fiction and reality, Kristalova gives form to abstract ideas evolving from memories and observations of the human condition.  Her expressive characters are both seductive and disarming reflecting the poignant and sometimes harsh events that make up our lives.  This will be the first solo museum exhibition of her work outside of Sweden.

 

Pastures Green: The British Passion for Landscape                  

Tuesday, Dec. 23, 2014 – Sunday, April 5, 2015

Audiences will be afforded a rare opportunity to follow the rise of landscape painting in Britain as the exhibition tells a story that runs from the Industrial Revolution through the eras of Romanticism, Impressionism, and Modernism, to the Postmodern and Post-Industrial imagery of today.  The exhibition also will offer new insights into the cultural history of Britain and the history of art generally. This exhibition is organized by the American Federation of Arts and National Museum Wales. In-kind support is provided by Barbara and Richard S. Lane.

 

The Triumph of Love: Beth Rudin DeWoody Collects

Sunday, Feb. 8, 2014 – Sunday, May 3, 2015                                                                      

The distinguished and distinctive art collection of New York and West Palm Beach resident and generous patron of the arts, Beth Rudin DeWoody, will be celebrated at the Norton Museum in spring 2015.  Well known internationally for her knowledgeable choices and awareness of the new and emerging genres of art and artists her passion for collecting has never subsided since acquiring her first drawing in the 1960s. With a collection that is still very much in progress, this exhibition will reflect areas of emphasis over the four decades she has been seriously engaged in looking at art. It will also reveal her connoisseurship and openness to new ideas.

 

High Tea: Glorious Manifestations East and West                                             Thursday, Feb. 19, 2015 – Sunday, May 24, 2015

High Tea: Glorious Manifestations - East and West spans a period of about 1,200 years from the 800s to the 1930s, with 125 objects to focus on the fine art of tea in eight key cultures worldwide- China, Korea, Japan, Germany, France, Russia, England and America. In these cultures, great works of art were created for members of high society, particularly the ruling elite and influential tea connoisseurs. Throughout time and regardless of place, tea gatherings in high society stand as efforts on the part of the host or hostess to create a memorable experience underscoring some aspect of their erudition.

Imaging Eden: Photographers Discover the Everglades                                               Thursday, March 19, 2015 – Sunday, July 12, 2015                                                                                                                                 

Photography has played an important role in the construction of the myth and reality of the Everglades. Imaging Eden presents an overview of the medium’s historic complicity as silent witness, pre-meditated booster, and passionate advocate of this unique environment, and also showcases commissioned work by four international contemporary artists, including Simon Norfolk (Nigeria), Jungjin Lee (Korea), Bert Tuenissen (the Netherlands) and Jim Goldberg (USA), whose practice is photo-based. Each artist had been asked to respond to and expand beyond the physical, ideological, and aesthetic boundaries of the Everglades in their own, unique way. The exhibition will provide fertile ground for future conversations about one of the most unique, contested, and vital landscapes on the planet.
