Discover Your Own Creative Super Powers!

19 Aug Elliott Logo

Exhibit now open through January 31, 2021. The Elliott Museum has installed a very cool exhibit that will allow you to explore your creative side! The exhibit features a Makerspace Lab with eight computer stations, four 3-D printers and two die-cut machines. You can create your own animated movies and paper engineering projects, and make designs that can be sent to our in-house 3-D printers and laser cutters. Helpful docents will be on hand to introduce you to our easy-to-use technology! All of this is included with the price of museum admission.

Additionally, we welcome you to the world of animation! It’s a world that’s larger-than-life, where a picture has the power to convey a thousand words, ignite an infinite realm of imagination, and create a limitless source of smiles.

On loan from the Lighthouse Art Center in Tequesta, this captivating exhibit is a whimsical gallery of madcap characters from six of the world’s leading animation artists.

The exhibit showcases the art of six very popular animation artists, including Carter Goodrich, character designer for Despicable Me, Ratatouille, Finding Nemo, Shrek, Hotel Transylvania, Brave, Open Season, Coco, as well as 17 New Yorker magazine covers (and counting).

We will introduce you to more of the participating artists over the weeks to come.

Indian River State College Cancells Performances

19 Oct IRSC Logo

Indian River State College has cancelled all performances through December in the McAlpin theatre, Wynne Black Box Theatre, and the Hallstrom Planetarium. Check online for updates, but that doesn't mean there's nothing happening.

Rebecca Shearer, theater manager, said, "For the first time ever, we have had the time to focus on some hardcore repairs/maintenance of the facilities, cleaning, and just helping design and plan for potential virtual performance options for our students. As an educational institution, we are very adamant about being able to still offer our students some type of performance training and performance opportunity. Each program (Theatre, Dance, Instrumental, and Vocal) are all planning on doing 'something' but nothing is 100% set in stone yet."

Participants will learn to listen more critically in ensemble rehearsals; to read and study scores to better understand how their part fits in with the whole; and to explore techniques for making individual practice more effective, efficient, and engaging.

Who Can Participate?
All TCYS musicians and those who plan to audition in the future are stronglyencouraged to participate in this opportunity.
This program is also open to high school and advanced middle school musicians, as well as amateur musicians who look forward to playing in large and small ensembles.

One day at a time is the key to building momentum.

We are so delighted to report that the reopening of the Historical Society's museums has unfolded smoothly. A great deal of care was taken to create protocols and make adaptations to provide a comprehensive level of safety to our staff, volunteers, and guests. Based upon the steady flow of returning guests, our efforts have not been in vain.

Our efforts to bring about a safe and effective reopening have been aided by a couple of historical precedents, and though we can't take credit for them, we are happy to share them.

The world's oldest museum was built by a Babylonian princess 2,500 years ago. Early museums began as private collections owned by wealthy individuals, families, or institutions of art and rare or curious natural objects and artifacts. These were often displayed in so-called wonder rooms or cabinets of curiosities.

The earliest of museums kept their artifacts undercover, under guard, and oftentimes under the radar. They were not public treasures. The DO NOT TOUCH protocol was introduced in 530 BC by Princess Ennigaldi-Nanna to safeguard her collection of Mesopotamian antiquities. This courtesy has weathered the challenge of time and is, in fact, quite useful as we pass through a chapter in our history where it is considered best to “look but don't touch.”

Despite the machinations of world governments and the constant presence of some modicum of human avarice and greed, the world keeps turning and life goes on. Life goes on because most people want to do the right thing. This pervasive human trait is readily apparent to me as I watch happy people enjoy a day at one of our museums. They are so glad to be out in the world. They are pleased to see that we have devised ways to make them feel very comfortable and safe, and still enjoy a full museum experience.

Our wonderful guests are clearly respecting, honoring, and extending every courtesy to their fellow guests as they take in the exhibits. It is a thing of beauty to observe, and it gives you hope for a happy ending to the unexpected challenge of the pandemic.

Consistency is the key to achieving and sustaining momentum. – Darren Hardy

As we take small steps forward, we will be mindful of doing so cautiously. We will do this with an unrelenting spirit to keep the snowball rolling to establish the momentum, while keeping our storied institution vital. We will continue to painstakingly clean and sanitize and smile through our masks.

We hope you can find it in your heart to venture out to Hutchinson Island and visit our museums soon. We promise a healthy and happy escape from the rigors of a world gone somewhat mad. We promise you will be intrigued by all the new exhibits, and your mental health will be significantly improved!

Be brave and thoughtful,
Rob Steele
