Statement of Purpose

A museum of American and European art spanning over four centuries, spotlighting art of the American West by Frederic Remington and Charles M. Russell.

The R.W. Norton Gallery of Art in Shreveport Louisiana was established by Mrs. Norton in 1946 in honor of Mr. Norton.

The Art Gallery in Shreveport Louisiana, over time began to amass a significant collection of fine art.

In 1946, to honor Mr. Norton and for the benefit of the community, Richard W. Norton, Jr. (1919-1974) and his mother, Mrs. Richard W. Norton (1886-1975) created the R.W. Norton Art Foundation.

In turn, the Foundation eventually established the R.W. Norton Art Gallery, basing its initial collection upon donations from the acquisitions of the Nortons.

Today, due to the on-going efforts of the Board of Control, the Foundation's work and the Gallery's offerings continue to expand, grow, and contribute to their community.
