Mission and Vision
It is the mission of the Ann Norton Sculpture Gardens to preserve the gardens as an outdoor setting for sculpture works, which will also benefit the biological chain of plants, wildlife, wild animals, and birds which inhabit or seasonally migrate to the area. The corporation will discourage use of poisonous sprays or insecticides within its property, except in the event of invasive diseases or plagues, etc., which may endanger the immediate or long-term well-being of said plants, birds, animals, and other wildlife.
To create a green area of indigenous and imported vegetation closely adjoining an area zoned for high-density population. A rare palm collection will be the special garden theme. The area will be managed to maintain a health-giving, life-giving ecological source of benefit to the citizens of the adjacent and surrounding communities, in order to further the common good and welfare of the people in those communities. They shall be entitled to visit the museum and grounds on payment of an admission fee during established open hours, and for special events as planned by the Board of Trustees and the Gardens staff.
The Ann Norton Sculpture Gardens’ vision for the future of the organization is to build lasting community stewardship that honors the integrity and intentions of its founder, Ann Norton, by continuing to follow its mission and the “Principles for the Gardens”.
