Catch a wave at The Westmoreland’s ‘beach party’ Summer Saturday
A “beach party” is planned for the July 20 Summer Saturday event at The Westmoreland Museum of American Art in Greensburg.
The centerpiece for the free evening, beginning at 7 p.m., will be the screening of “The Endless Summer,” a 1966 movie following two surfers on a surfing trip around the world. The seminal surf movie features a soundtrack by the early surf rock band, The Sandals.
Also on tap are beach tunes performed by Stage Right!, outdoor and in-museum activities, cash bar and treats from Smoker’s BBQ and Barry’s Italian Ice.
Visitors will be able to view the new exhibition in the main Cantilever Gallery, “Era of Cool: The Art of John Van Hamersveld.” A multidisciplinary pop artist with a career spanning more than 50 years, Van Hamersveld designed the official poster for “The Endless Summer.”
“Era of Cool” features a selection of Van Hamersveld’s iconic album covers, poster designs, drawings, mural designs, photography and paintings.
Summer Saturday will also serve as the opening reception for Nicole Czapinski’s exhibition, “An Illusionary Pain in a Nonexistent Hand,” in the Robertshaw Gallery.
In case of rain, outdoor activities will move into the museum’s community room.
