The Endless Summer 50th Anniversary Art Exhibition
In 1964 a young filmmaker named Bruce Brown set out on a quest following two surfers on a surfing trip around the world. As the title suggests if one had enough time and money it would be possible to follow the summer around the world, making it “endless”. He created a timeless classic, an iconic film that inspired generations and is beloved by millions.
