Brevard Museum Of Art And Science

The Brevard Museum of Art and Science is located in Old Eau Gallie, one of Brevard County's historic districts and one block from the Indian River. The focal point of an ever-expanding artistic and cultural center, Brevard Museum of Art is committed to the creation, exhibition, collection, preservation and appreciation of the visual arts.


Permanent Collection

Collections at the Art Museum include contemporary works by many American artists including the stunning kinetic work of Lin Emery, playful color collages of Miriam Schapiro, the architechtonic nostalgic assemblage of Louise Nevelson and George Snyder's
patterned tubular structures.


Exhibitions

The Museum's multiple gallery spaces allow for simultaneous exhibitions or the showcasing of a spectacular work, an individual artist or a special theme exhibition. The Art Museum presents eight to ten exhibitions per year. Many of the exhibitions come from private and public collections or corporate collections. Many exhibitions are curated in-house to better serve the needs and interests of our visiting public. Visits to the exhibitions are enhanced by gallery videos, Gallery Guides and publications, and docent led tours.


Forthcoming exhibitions

Exhibitions:

Joanna White
Through June 17, 2007
Paper origami boxes serve as metaphors for artist Joanna White. Delicate but structured, solid but fragile, the boxes are juxtaposed, suspended, and exploited for their vulnerability and subjected to arranging, trapping, isolation, or crushing. The simple structure provides an endless framework for handling a range of ideas important to White rhythmic forms, production, and fragility.

Juried Exhibition 2007
Through July 1, 2007
Artists working in all media will be competing for $10,000 in prize money. Stay tuned for information on the Opening Reception with Artists for this exciting exhibition and related programming such as gallery walks and artist demonstrations.
