Demolition crews have started tearing down sections of the still-open Norton Museum of Art. It is the initial phase of an expansion and renovation of the West Palm Beach landmark. Admission to the museum remains free because of the project. Many paintings are in storage but some remain on the walls, including works by Matisse and Picasso.

The museum at 1451 Olive Street just east of South Dixie Highway is scheduled to reopen in December 2018 with a newly renovated gift shop, great hall and theater. The museum’s three-floor Nessel Wing also will undergo renovation. Norton spokesman Scot Benarde told the Palm Beach Post crews are demolishing the museum’s Harris Pavilion, the inner atrium and stairways, and the entry to the Great Hall, plus rooms for classes and business meetings. Demolition work at the Norton is expected to end this month. [Palm Beach Post] Mike Seemuth
