Co-founded in 2005 by Gerrit Schulz-Bennewitz and Peter Saile, Altos del Mar Sculpture Park was built in the historic district of Altos del Mar, Miami Beach with the mission to serve the community through an aesthetic experience beyond that of a traditional museum setting.
Altos del Mar Sculpture Park was designed with minimal environmental interventions by landscape architects Margarita Blanco and Ben Hutchens.
The Altos del Mar Sculpture Park displays changing exhibitions as well as provides art classes and educational programs.
Admission free, open all year round
Located on the Intercoastal Waterway, near downtown West Palm Beach, is the 2 acre Ann Norton Sculpture Gardens, her residence, and art studio. Over 100 sculptures by the artist are on display including eight large scale red "brick" sculptures, heroic in scale, on the grounds of the garden. They are strong references to pre-Columbian Mayan art and architecture. Over 300 species of palm trees are placed in a well landscaped formal garden setting.
Another large scale group of standing figures are made with Norwegian granite, hinting of Vigeland's influence, (Frogner Park in Oslo). In spite of derivative influences, Norton's own style comes through loud and clear. While she was alive (1905-1982), her work was shown at both the Whitney, and the Guggenheim Museums in New York. Her late husband, Ralph Hubbard Norton, was the president of the Acme Steel Corporation, Chicago.
The garden also hosts a hosts a schedule of exhibitions by well known artists and an education programme.
The garden is open Wednesdays to Sundays from 11am to 4pm. No entrance fee although donations are accepted.
