Director’s Message

The Vero Beach Museum of Art opened 33 years ago initially as a center for the arts with rich humanities programs and a vital art school. This year marks the first full season when our broad range of programs are unified around the Museum’s significant exhibitions: L’Affichomania: The Passion for French Posters and From Homer to Hopper: American Art from The Phillips Collection, Washington, DC.

The audience participation and attendance for these programs thus far have been amazing, and we feel this direction established in our strategic plan has quickly developed traction. From Homer to Hopper: American Art from The Phillips Collection, Washington, DC will be a singular event at the Museum, drawn from America’s first modern art museum. You will be thrilled with the exceptional quality of works on view in this show created from the 1880s through the 1960s, a remarkable period in American history that will be explored within our program offerings, providing rich elucidation of the content of the exhibition. You will see details in the following pages, and we encourage early registration as space is limited, and program capacity fills quickly.

This fall, we were pleased to announce the launch of a new program intended for Veterans in our community. The Veterans Community Mural Project was developed with the support of Indian River County Veteran organizations, and co-ordinated by Dawn Miller, VBMA Art for Health’s Sake Program Manager. For five weeks participants took part in creative expression, learned about the elements of art, and shared service experiences that culminated in the final mural design, a stunning achievement..

We encourage you to visit the mural, situated on the south lawn sculpture garden wall, that honors local Veterans’ commitment, time, and the sacrifices made. This project represents our first foray into Veteran’s programs, generously sponsored by four VBMA Circle member donors

The New Year is fast approaching, as is the Museum’s annual Gala 2020: A Little Night Music featuring the dazzling performer Michael Amante that promises to be a memorable evening on January 31st. My thanks go to our wonderful Co-Chairs Dhuanne Tansill and Judy Schneebeck for their inspired creative effort.
