As our regular patrons are aware, we've been doing some remodeling and reorganizing here at the Norton. Those of you who visit us regularly have noticed the striking changes in our central galleries and North Wing. Now it's the South Wing's turn. Unfortunately, this means we'll have to close down the wing for a time in order to debut our new look later this spring. The South Wing will be closed beginning Monday, February 3rd. When will it re-open? As soon as possible. We'll be sure to let you know, so be prepared to rejoin us for a bright new spring opening!
