Written by Pam Harbaugh Florida Today.com
While art lovers avail themselves of Brevard’s two fine art museums — the Foosaner Art Museum and the Ruth Funk Center for Textile Arts — they are only a pleasant drive away from the Vero Beach Museum of Art.On Saturday, the museum opened “Pop Art Revisited: A 21st Century Perspective” in its new Titelman Gallery. The exhibition comprises 32 iconic works by historically important artists such as Robert Rauschenberg, Andy Warhol, Jasper Johns and Robert Indiana. The exhibit runs through Jan. 2.
The Vero Beach Museum of Art opened in 1986 and won accreditation from the august American Association of Museums in 1997. Then, in 1999, it began a massive expansion and redesign project, which doubled its size to 54,509 square feet. Museum visitors also enjoy the adjacent Jim Beckwith Sculpture Park.
The Vero Beach Museum of Art is at 3001 Riverside Park Drive, Vero Beach. Regular hours are 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday to Saturday and 1 to 4:30 p.m. Sunday. Admission is generally free, with donations accepted. Occasionally, the museum presents exhibits for which an admission fee is charged. Admission to the “Pop Art Revisited” exhibit is free.
