Even our Museum Shop is immersed in beach images this summer! Special Projects Coordinator Shari Corley, who manages the Shop, says it’s been great fun finding merchandise to coordinate with our two summer exhibits,
The Water’s Fine
Making Waves: A Drew Brophy Retrospective.
The world-renowned surf artist’s images will be available for sale on posters, postcards — and on the inside of a beautiful collection of signature glassware, that includes reusable bottles and pint glasses featuring the art of Drew Brophy. “They are incredibly colorful,” Shari says. “And we are exclusive in Myrtle Beach for these products.”
For those who’d like to emulate Brophy’s style, there’s an instructional video in which the artist demonstrates his unique paint-pen technique. You can also purchase the same Posca paint pens Brophy uses to create his artwork. For those less skilled, or ambitious, a line of Brophy-art refrigerator magnets can add a touch of surf art to the kitchen.
For young surfers (or aspiring surfers), there are two children’s books that will be available in the shop:

There’s also a book on the subject for grownups:
