For many, Thursday is the start of the weekend and the Norton Museum of Art kicks it off right with their Art After Dark event.

Art After Dark takes place every Thursday evening at the Norton Museum

Open late every Thursday, Art After Dark is one of the Norton Museum’s most popular programs.  Touted as the place where “culture and entertainment meet,” the event offers an eclectic lineup of activates, including: a variety of music from all genres, the opportunity to chat with curators about your favorite pieces, docent-led tours, art activities, film, dance, wine tastings, chef demos, and more.

Don’t forget to peruse the permanent collection housed within the rest of the museum while you’re enjoying Art After Dark. Special exhibitions not to be missed this season include  Spotlight/Brilliant: Recent Acquisitions, and Earth Works: Mapping the Anthropocene, in addition to contemporary collections from China, America, and Europe.

Art After Dark runs from 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. every Thursday and admission is free. Food and beverages are served from the museum’s café, Fratelli Lyon, which offers an à la carte dinner menu from 5 to 8:30 p.m. Norton Museum is located at 1451 S. Olive Ave. in West Palm Beach.
