It takes a community to build an Aquarium …
please do your part and lend us your art!
We are calling on artists from Brevard, and from all over the world, to loan us your artwork for a three-month period to raise awareness of Indian River Lagoon restoration work and the future Aquarium.
A cross-discipline jury, including Aquarium Art Walk Team members, will review submissions and select the best representations of Aquarium or Indian River Lagoon themed art.
The jury-selected art will be displayed throughout
Brevard County. The Art Walk will be
a well publicized and promoted event
– great fun for residents and tourists!
All dates are subject to change due to
pandemics, plagues, the unimaginable (?)
… and any lingering after effects!

Art can include free standing sculptures (size is variable) that can safely be displayed independently (indoors or outdoors) OR ready-to-hang art. Because of venue constraints, suggested size limits for art are between 6 sq. ft. and 36 sq. ft. We are flexible on how these size requirements are met. For example:
- a 1’x6’ piece or six individual 1’x1’ pieces would be acceptable as 6 sq. ft.
- a 6’x6’ piece or a 3’x4’ triptych would be acceptable as a 36 sq. ft. submission.
Artworks will be displayed either individually or grouped depending upon the venue and the works. This determination will be made by the Art Walk team after the art is juried and the venues identified.
This is a juried event. Each artist may submit up to three artworks in total, one application per piece.
