Holiday Magic, an invitational marketplace and exhibition, is sure to put you in the holiday spirit. For our next show, TC Arts Council is transforming the Gallery into a holiday marketplace featuring a wide selection of distinctive handcrafted items created by local artists, including jewelry, pottery, sculpture, paintings, photography, fiber art, and more. This exhibit will provide an artful holiday experience for the whole family, plus an opportunity to keep your holiday shopping unique and local.

In addition, on Saturday afternoons during Holiday Magic, enjoy music, artist demonstrations, and other performances from local musicians and artists, along with refreshments.

Holiday Magic opens on November 17th, and closes December 22nd. Stay tuned for more information to come in the following weeks!

City of Brevard Public Art Policy​

"In order to beautify public areas, enhance the quality of life for Brevard citizens, attract tourism, promote arts and culture, and encourage businesses to locate within the city, thus expanding Brevard’s economic base, it is the policy of the City of Brevard to promote public art, where appropriate, through the implementation of a clarified process and design guidelines."

In February 2021, the Brevard City Council adopted a Public Art Policy and Application Process, which defines "public art" as "art on publicly- or privately-owned non-residential property that is visible from public streets and pedestrian walkways to be approved by City Council prior to installation."
