Featuring the Nation's Largest Selection of A.E. Backus Originals
The A.E. Backus Museum is fresh from a multi-million dollar expansion, which doubled its size, as well as re-imagining of exhibitions and a Museum Store expansion. Housing the nation’s largest public exhibition of artwork by Florida’s preeminent painter, A.E. Backus, the Museum also offers the State’s only permanent multi-media exhibition on the Florida Highwaymen.
Changing exhibits from artists of national and international acclaim round out the Museum’s Florida centered mission. The outdoor Mural Plaza opens onto a park that borders the Indian River Lagoon and offers a place for fresh air and artistic inspiration. Families and school groups will enjoy the Art & History Scavenger Hunt which is open to the public and free of charge.
Come in and check out the all new murals in the mural plaza surrounding the museum.

Pastel Portrait: Miss L
The competition was fierce this year to be juried in to the A.E. Backus Museum & Gallery’s annual “Best of the Best” Show. The judges – Michael Enns, Janeen Mason and Leslie Stokes, had the difficult job of judging 276 entries in four categories to create the final “Best of the Best” exhibit with less than 100 works on display.
The Best in Show award went to
Dawn E. Miller for her haunting pastel portrait titled “Miss L”.
