On 1 August 2014, the Norton opened a four-year exhibition, Art of the Great War. Throughout the exhibition you'll see original posters and learn about life in the city of Shreveport and in Caddo and Bossier Parishes during the conflict, including the men from here who gave their lives in the trenches of France.

CALLING ALL ARTISTS!!! We are excited to announce that we will be holding the 2nd Annual BLOOM! Exhibit opening in April 2017. So get your paint brushes ready and start working on your piece to submit! February 6, 2017 is the deadline for the submissions. Click on the image above for more information...
Please check all swords, spears, tritons, ninja stars, fairy wands, and broomsticks at the front desk. Children of all ages will be welcomed to the Norton for tricks, treats and perhaps a few thrills. As they follow the magic path through the museum, they will be greeted by magical beings (otherwise known as members of our Youth Advisory Board and museum staff members) bearing treats, trinkets, and candy. We will also have our third annual costume contest with prizes provided by Rhino Coffee. A parent or guardian must accompany all children and bring his or her own trick-or-treat container for collecting goodies through out the musuem. Please join us for an enchanted evening sharing great art and good fun. All will have a delightful time.

Children snickered when he waddled by, this oddly shaped man barely five feet tall with wide hips and tapering shoulders. Cronies referred to him as Papá for the heavy accent that peppered his speech, the legacy of the wealthy French Creole family that raised him in the French Quarter of New Orleans. Like another oddly shaped artist then working in Paris, he preferred the company of loose women and louche men. But John Ernest Joseph Bellocq had a way with a camera that captured the soul of his subjects, even those in professions widely held to be soulless. A minority of his glass prints survived. Those that weren't broken often had the faces scratched out, some speculate by Bellocq himself, since the damage was done while the emulsion was still wet.
