“Beautiful grounds especially in the spring”
Reviewed March 27, 2012

A trip to the grounds of the Norton Art Gallery is an annual pilgrimage for locals when their thousands of azaleas are in bloom. A pretty site for photographs, a picnic or just to stroll. The museum is, of course, fabulous and well worth your time to see the permanent displays of sculptures by Rodin and Remington as well as paintings, glass, firearms and so much more. VIsit their website at rwnaf.org for the lastest displays.

“Azaleas and Art!”
Reviewed March 19, 2012

The landscape is absolutely wonderful. You wander through the grounds and never know you are in the middle of Shreveport. The azaleas are breathtaking. The Art Gallery itself is beautiful and captivating as well.
