Community, music and arts events of relevance to the Space Coast

Surfrider Foundation is an international non-profit conservation group dedicated to the preservation and enjoyment of oceans, waves, and beaches. Our chapter covers south Brevard and Indian River Counties. We work to keep our beaches as natural as possible, preserve and enhance beach access, and we're also involved in efforts to restore the IRL.

Join us for our 16th Annual Waterman's Challenge and Luau. Once again we will feature surfing divisions for everyone from menehunes to senior citizens. Bring the family for a weekend of fun and surfing!

Our physical world is created out of the chemical elements, from hydrogen to platinum to arsenic. For this exhibition, each of the selected artists created a new work influenced by an element from the periodic table. Inspirations came from anything relating to that element, whether it is a play on the name, its color or the products made from it. Both representational and abstract works were welcomed.

Now in its sixth year, A View Within is the result of a collaborative project by contemporary artists Paula Chung and Karen Rips. The artists’ fascination with the human body, as revealed through advances in medical imagery, is the primary inspiration for this exhibition of tapestries. A View Within was originally driven by individual images as they became available. However, the success of this project has resulted in more body images being made available, allowing the artists to visually explore the body’s systems and functions in depth.
