Got Your Picture!

Some photos aren’t meant for display, like the ones Mom took of you sitting on a tricycle wearing nothing but your birthday suit. But other photos, those taken by professionals who steer clear of silliness and focus on beauty instead, for example, are definitely meant to be shared. Thankfully Baroness Jeane von Oppenheim knows the difference between a hack shutterbug and the real deal; her collection of several hundred photographs founded the Norton’s collection of photography. Now, 65 of those photos are on display as part of “Coming into Focus: Jeane von Oppenheim and Photography at the Norton, 1998—2008.” Expect to see works by familiar, internationally known photogs like Robert Mapplethorpe and Henri Cartier-Bresson, along with lesser-known artists like Edwin Hale Lincoln and Bevan Davies. See the shots Mondays through Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sundays from 1 to 5 p.m. at the Norton Museum of Art (1451 S. Olive Ave., West Palm Beach). Thirty-minute lunchtime tours of the exhibit are available at 12:30 on Mondays in November and Wednesdays in December. General admission is $8 for adults and $3 for visitors ages 13-21. Call 561-832-5196 for more information, or visit norton.org.
