WHO: Ann Norton Sculpture Gardens


WHAT: Free Community Open House


As a thank you to the community, the Ann Norton Sculpture Gardens is proud to kick off the season with a FREE Community Open House. For one day only, the public can step through the garden gates free of charge to experience garden and exhibition tours, refreshments in the courtyard, music and some special surprises.


“With this free Community Open House, we hope to introduce even more people to this beautiful urban sanctuary,” said Cynthia Kanai, CEO for the Ann Norton Sculpture Gardens. “We invite the public to tour our grounds – including Ann Norton’s studio and her magnificent sculptures, the historic home where Ann lived, and the almost 2-acre gardens with a beautiful landscape of more than 250 species of rare palms and cycads. In addition, visitors will have the opportunity to create their own sculptures surrounded by all things meaningful to Ann – her art, rare gardens, music and friends.”


Visitors will also be able to view the exhibition Expanding Horizons: Nontraditional Approaches to Photography, which will be on display in the historic home. In partnership with JL Modern Photography, the exhibition will include photography featuring works by Kimiki Yoshida, Bernard Faucon and Steven Wilkes.
