Surfing and its influences are part of everyday life for many people and this exhibition will explore the evolution of this extreme sport in our region.
A timeline, interactives, paintings by artist Kurt Jackson, boards from private collectors and the Museum of British Surfing plus images and vintage magazine covers from renowned surf photographer, Alex Williams will show how different elements of the sport have evolved since the early 1900s.
The exhibition will also include a woodblock print, on loan from Cheltenham Art Gallery & Museum, of ‘The Wave’ by Katsushika Hokusai. This iconic print is one of the most reproduced artworks in the world.
Loads of family-friendly surf-related events including a free film screening on 31 July and arts and crafts workshops for children on 2, 8, 9, 15, 16, 22, 29 and 30 August. We are also offering a 'Surf's Up' Wild About Plymouth event on 5 August 2012 and an Art in 'Endless Summer' Art Bite talk/tour on 26 September 2012.
