PBSC students to participate in Norton Museum’s College Night April 12

Palm Beach State College and Palm Beach Atlantic University students will be participating in the Norton Museum of Art’s College Night from 5 to 10 p.m. April 12 in West Palm Beach, 1450 S. Dixie Hwy.

The event, titled “Art After Dark: Celebrating College Student Creativity,” will feature hands-on workshops, live performances, poetry and storytelling, a dance session and more.

PBSC fine art students will participate in the Vendor’s Market and lead 15-minute Spotlight Tours on specific pieces in Norton’s collection. In addition, PBSC’s music and theatre students will perform.

One PBSC Dr. Floyd F. Koch Honors College student who will be giving a Spotlight Tour is Salena Maharaj who will be speaking about Monet’s Garden at Bordighera, an exquisite oil on canvas painting created by the renowned artist Claude Monet in 1884.

Maharaj, who is currently pursuing an Associate in Arts degree at PBSC, plans to obtain a master’s degree in museum studies.

“There is a great new exhibit of Rose B. Simpson’s clay work that is incredible, as well as the entire museum is open,” said professor Kristin Miller, who is helping coordinate PBSC’s participation.

Free admission is only available to college students with a valid ID.
