Art After Dark


If you’ve never been to an Art After Dark event at the Norton Art Museum, the best way to describe it is where culture and entertainment meet while showcasing a fascinating mix of art, music, film and more.

Every night Art After Dark explores a particular theme in the Museum Collection or a special exhibition. Art workshops and demonstrations are also part of the fun!

Although the event lasts until about 9pm, Club Braman will be there to check in until 7:30pm.

If you haven’t been lately, parts of the Norton are currently under construction. Accessible parking spaces are available in the Museum Parking lot across South Dixie Highway from the Museum. Ongoing accessible shuttle service is available during the Museum’s public hours from the parking lot to the Museum. The accessible drop-off area for the shuttle and car service is on the corner of Jefferson and Olive Avenue, ½ block from the Museum entrance. This entrance has an accessible ramp. The Visitor Services staff is ready to assist visitors entering the Museum.
