Trick or Treat

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 second 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.

Norton At Night
Friday, November 06, 2015, 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

While water may be easy to come by these days, great whiskey can be a different story entirely. With so many variations and origins, whiskey connoisseurs know what a task, and a gift, a wonderful whiskey can be. Whiskeys are a strictly regulated spirit which helps explain the complexities of types and flavors. During this Norton at Night, you will find yourself sampling five types of whiskey: a Japanese single-malt whiskey, a modern Texas blended whiskey, a thrice distilled Irish whiskey, an oak-casked Scotch, and finally, a strong American Bourbon. As usual, we will not let your appetite for great art or great food fall by the wayside; heavy hors d'oeuvres will be served courtesy of Cuban Liquor and staff through the Gallery will inform you of these whiskey's homelands. Click here for tickets.  For more details, click on the image above.
