Modern to ancient art featured in local museums
BY ANNA INGRAM
This Treasure Coast art season is packed with thrilling exhibitions. Art enthusiasts interested in Modern art will be captivated by shows featuring M.C. Escher at the Vero Beach Museum of Art as well as science fiction illustrations at the A.E. Backus Museum. Later in the season, both the Vero Beach Museum of Art and the Elliott Museum will celebrate the centennial discovery of King Tutankhamun’s tomb in Egypt. Furthermore, local Florida artists will have special exhibitions at the Elliott and the A.E. Backus museums highlighting Florida’s beauty. Be sure to mark your calendar for these wonderful exhibitions, ranging from modern to ancient art.
VERO BEACH MUSEUM OF ART
The VBMA exhibition lineup caters to all visitors. Right now, until the end of December, fans of M.C. Escher will witness one of the largest traveling collections of his work. But if modern art is not on your radar, save the date for the VBMA’s Ancient Egypt and the Napoleonic Era exhibit.
