Norton Museum of Art 80th Anniversary Celebration Virtual Gala
Harbor Entertainment worked with the Norton Museum of Art to create and produce a fully virtual celebration for their 80th Anniversary. As this event is typically held in person with hundreds of guests, this virtual event created a new opportunity to showcase the Norton in a different way.
We utilized interview style segments and behind the scenes footage to showcase the Norton’s impact on the local community, their artist programs, and particularly RAW (Recognition of Art by Women Series). Video submissions from friends, artists, and past RAW artists, as well as historic photos, were worked in to celebrate the past, present and future of the museum.
A large component of the 80th Celebration, was the museum’s online auction hosted by Sotheby’s. The online auction featured over 90 works. During the virtual event we were able to highlight different pieces on view at the museum as well as walk the attendees through the online bidding process courtesy of Sotheby’s. The evening concluded with a live musical performance that was filmed in front of the historic entrance of the museum.
