We came unannounced and had to call twice before John's wife appeared in a window. We hadn't contacted the museum beforehand and therefore didn't know that the family appreciated that they were contacted prior to a visit. We were still locked in and we were given an amazing tour among John's works and in his workshop. John's works are mainly produced in waste products: empty cigarette packets, flamingo, cigarette butts, used coffee cups, plastics, bottles and whatever else you can find by throwing away effects. There were works everywhere in John's home: Atelier, Lager, museum, Kitchen, living room, bedroom-everywhere! We also saw some of John's paintings. They impressed us! We are very thankful that we were locked in and got this experience. It is definitely worth contacting John Norwood and agreeing a visit. We had come straight from Noma, but it was the experience with John who will put clues when we remember back on our New York trip this time. Eva & Benny
John Norwood was there to show us around his amazing collection. He is so sweet, fun and genuine. We loved his eclectic compilation of art. Thanks John! more »
Art of a different perspective and forms. Unique, complex, yet simple. Rubi and John are welcoming and nice with a sense of humor. We did not know it was a by appointment only museum, and they welcomed us with hospitality. Personally, I believe the true art here are the hosts. Go experience it!
I’d never visited a house-museum in my life before I went to Norwood Museum. I could had never imagined that someone could turn garbage into art. A really creative art. John and his wife Ruby not only gave us a magnificent tour around their house, but also shared anecdotes from their lives and trips. Norwood Museum goes beyond the innovation and revolution of modern art. Thank you John and Ruby for having opened the doors of your home and heart to two visitors who not only left with a new idea of what good art can inspire, but also what love can create within a home.
