Interview with Ellen Roberts, Norton Museum of Art
Recently, I had the opportunity to interview Ellen Roberts, the new Harold and Anne Berkley Smith Curator of American Art at the Norton Museum of Art for the Palm Beach ArtsPaper (click to read the interview). I think she’s terrific and I was impressed by her enthusiasm and knowledge. When I met with her, she’d been at her post less than two weeks and she already knew the museum’s collection like she’d been there for years. In the photo I took above (that unfortunately came out very dark) she stands between Edward Hopper’s August in the City (1945) and Charles Sheeler’s Shadow and Substance (1950).
