The Museum of Arts & Sciences (MOAS)
The Giant Ground Sloth
The Impressive 13-foot tall skeleton of the
Eremotheriumlaurilardi or giant ground sloth was excavated in 1975, in an important Pleistocene Fossil site called the Daytona Bone Bed. Approximately 130,000 years ago, the Giant Ground Sloth lived in the coastal area of Florida and specifically in Volusia County. This huge, hairy mammal weighed between three to five tons and rose to the height of 15-20 feet on its hind legs, was 5 feet wide and about 20 feet long. It was a plant eater (herbivorous) and is believed to have roamed Florida lands in herds searching for food. The Volusia County Giant Ground Sloth is the best preserved
and most complete fossil of this species in North America. And has made its home at The Center for Florida History at MOAS for the past 30 years. 352 S. Nova Road,

Luster: Realism and Hyperrealism in Contemporary Automobile and Motorcycle Painting
Drawing on the legacy of the first generation of American photorealist painters such as Chuck Close, Richard Estes, Robert Cottingham, and Don Eddy, many late 20th century and early 21st century painters have continued to exalt triumphs of vehicular design through extremely realistic, almost trompe l’oeil renditions of cars, motorcycles, and other conveyances. This exhibition brings together over 50 works by 15 of today’s leading artists working in this style in a true celebration of chrome, curves, speed, and power – the essence of modern car and motorcycle culture. The artists in this exhibition represent the best of today’s automotive painting and their works show car and motorcycle design from vintage vehicles to classics of the 1950s and 60s, to road and racing, off-road vehicles, exotics, and more.
