You're invited to come see the Surfboard Art of Chuck Trunks at the Discovery Center in Thousand Oaks!

Thousand Oaks, CA — February 7, 2012 — Chuck Trunks' Surfboard Art will be displayed at the Discovery Center in Thousand Oaks through February 20th.


In December The Discovery Center for Science and Technology opened its Tinkering Zone, a variety of hands-on activities that encourage creativity and problem-solving through construction and scientific exploration.

One of the hands-on activities includes designing and making your own surfboard skins. The two kids pictured here were quickly ushered out of the building after they made a couple of really nice designs. Artist rule #47: Don't allow competing artists to upstage your solo installation!

From the President of the Westlake Village based Discovery Center For Science and Technology:
"In addition to all the fun tinkering exhibits on the museum floor, The Discovery Center is thrilled to be able to display the creative work of local artist and scientist, Chuck Trunks. “Trunks' colorful surfboard art pieces reflect the kind of out of the box creativity that we value. His pop-art, brightly hued pieces take inspiration from his work in biology, the corporate world, and the natural beauty of Ventura County,” stated DC President, Carrie Glicksteen. “He takes well-used surfboards that would normally be discarded and turns them not only into beautiful wall art, but prepares them for a second life in the ocean; recycling at its best!” Trunks states, "The ocean is responsible for so much art inspiration - why not create art that 'goes back' to the ocean?"

The exhibit, located at 43 W. Thousand Oaks Boulevard, next to Big 5, will run through February 20, 2012. Hours are 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Admission is $5 per person. Follow The Discovery Center for Science and Technology on Facebook for the most current information. For additional information call 818 879-2021.
