The Elliott Museum New Exhibit

Posted by Amanda Hicks on Wednesday, December 6th, 2017 at 1:43pm.

The Elliott Museum in Stuart will be presenting a new exhibit called "Art of the Bahamas." The showcase is a collaboration between the Elliott Museum and the National Art Gallery of the Bahamas (NAGB). 

More than 40 paintings will be on display from the NAGB and local artists. The exhibit celebrates the creative spirit of the Bahamas and the diverse visions the beautiful islands have inspired.

The Art of the Bahamas goes on display December 15 and will be in the museum through February. Viewing times are from 5:30- 7:30 p.m. 

The Elliott Museum has a number of permanent displays including a Baseball Hall, Treasure Coast History, Maritime History, Founder Sterling Elliott History, and the infamous Wheels of Change. The Wheels of Change exhibit consists of 90 vehicles dating back to 1903. It has the nation's largest collection of Model G Fords. The coolest part about Wheels is that the cars are on a 3-story robotic racking display. Each car is mounted on an aluminum carrier tray. The machine can be operated manually for a docent to take requests, bringing a specific car down to a turntable that rotates to give you a full view of the historic vehicle. When a docent is not available, the machine pre-selects a rotation of cars to bring down and display.

The Elliott Museum is located at Stuart Beach. After your tour, walk over to the beach and see the beautiful clear water of the Atlantic.
