In an effort to attract younger patrons, the Brevard Art Museum has found itself thinking out of the proverbial box of late.
If the three month showing of popular culture icon Annie Leibovitz’s “Women” exhibit wasn’t enough, the museum recently offered up “Robot Love: Two Rapturous Nights of Art, Music, and Love“ to astonishing success, even drawing the likes of world champion surfer CJ Hobgood or was it Damien…hmm.
The reason I say ‘astonishing’ is because for a long time the showcasing of popular culture has been rather non-existant on Florida’s Space Coast. Now, thanks to the Annie Leibovitz and “Robot Love” that’s no longer true.
A three-day artpalooza, which I had the pleasure of catching this past weekend, “Robot Love” featured local and regional talent blended with a fashion show, a handful of live bands, wicked DJs, cash bar, and even yummy tacos.
Even though the centerpiece of the exhibit was a life-size, glass robot constructed by Eric Layton a glazier/artist from Orlando, FL., other pieces local guerilla artisits, photographers, sculptors, and even a custom bike maker, yelled for patron’s attention as well.
The event was curated for the musuem by Kevon Greenidge, pop culture enthusiast and owner of 321 Agency, a marketing and online company.
