Feb 26 @ 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm

Our good friends with the Florida Public Archaeology Network (FPAN) are back with another installation of Archaeology Works, “Shells”. Archaeologists study ancient shells to not only learn about the diets and tools of prehistoric Floridians, but also the environments they lived in. Learn to identify different shell types from the east coast and the ways archaeologists use them to learn about the past.

Mrs. Barr is one of Central Florida’s most recognized and celebrated modern impressionist painters who also has a special connection with New Smyrna Beach and Southeast Volusia County. Join us for an intimate visit with Mrs. Barr as she shares stories of childhood visits to New Smyrna Beach in the 1940’s as well as how her desire for more opportunities in life resulted in her introduction to painting and eventually led her back to New Smyrna Beach.
