Surf Craft: Design and the Culture of Board Riding

When: Wednesdays-Sundays, 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Continues through Sept. 25 2016

People have made surfboards for centuries. Standing alone, these boards are often striking examples of functional design. Together, they tell a compelling story about the evolution of an important American art form. Traditional craft, cutting-edge engineering and minimalist art converge in the Museum’s new exhibition devoted to surfboards built from the late 1940s to the present day. Surf Craft chronicles the evolution of surfboard design featuring American makers and shapers of all kinds of wave-riding boards. It explains how meticulous hand craftsmanship can inform modern high volume commercially made surf craft.

Price: $5 individual admission; $8 family admission; free for 18 and under; free for everyone on Wednesdays
