Check out the lastest news:
Art of Sand continues to "wow" guest and now Brevard Zoo is offering guests the opportunity to experience Wild Florida: Past, Present and Future, at night during Evenings at Art of Sand. On Friday, May 17 and May 24 from 6 to 9 p.m., guests are invited to take in this incredible exhibit as the sun sets. Cost for this exhibit is $5 for members and $10 for non-members. Price only includes admission to the exhibit. The Zoo will not be open during the evening.
The exhibit is open daily from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. through Memorial Day (May 27). When you visit the exhibit this year you will be totally amazed at what can be created with 540 tons of sand! Guests to Brevard Zoo are invited to take a walk on the wild side through our quarter mile trail as they explore new depths of art and history.
What makes this exhibit so unique is that each sculpture is part of one amazing story - the story of Florida. Take in the beauty of 13 incredible sand sculptures set along the native landscape of Brevard Zoo. Created by eight master sand sculptors from around the globe, Wild Florida: Past, Present, & Future traces the history of La Florida. As we commemorate the 500th anniversary of Ponce de Leon's landing in North America this year, this exhibit reflects the history of Wild Florida from 10,000 B.C. to present, showcasing the people and wildlife and how they are inextricably and forever linked.
Wild Florida: Past, Present and Future includes educational programs, hands-on activities for children, opportunities to interact with master sculptors and much more!
Art of Sand is being produced through a partnership of the Brevard Cultural Alliance, SCB Marketing, and Brevard Zoo.
