Unwrapped: Gifts from the Peter Norton Family Christmas Project
October 28, 2017 – January 21, 2018
Asheville Art Museum On the Slope  |  175 Biltmore Avenue
Every year since 1988, technology entrepreneur and avid collector Peter Norton commissions an artist to create an original work of art that is then produced in multiples and sent to friends and select art institutions. The Asheville Art Museum is honored to be an annual recipient of the Norton Family Christmas Project since 1993. The Museum is excited to present a selection of these gifts in Unwrapped: Gifts from the Peter Norton Family Christmas Project, an exhibition on view October 28, 2017 – January 21, 2018.

Committed to helping promote and launch the careers of his favorite artists, Norton selects promising individuals and introduces new talent to a community of curators, such as Sanford Biggers, Vik Muniz and Kara Walker.
