January, 2018. The Norton Museum of Art is located in West Palm Beach, Florida. A grant was given to electrically wire three dollhouses which were to display a series of miniature paintings and other pieces of art.
The display tells a story of three dollhouses Lucy Bassett prepared to give to her granddaughters'. In early 1993 while showing the nearly finished dollhouses to her friend and artist Cy Twombly; Artist, Twombly declared: "Miss Lucy, you need some art on these walls!". Lucy Bassett decided and planned a three day party to create paintings for her three houses. The three days extended into several weeks and a group of artists invited by Lucy and her friend Cy Twombly completed the art displayed in these houses. Other participant artists were: Donald Baechler, Ross Bleckner, Philip Taaffe, Michelle Zalopany, and Twombly.
