In 1961 General MacArthur executed a deed of gift in which he gave the City of Norfolk all his trophies, medals, prizes, decorations, uniforms, flags, swords, battle souvenirs, personal papers, documents, records and other personal memorabilia. The city restored the historic 1850 city hall to house this collection. The Jean MacArthur Research Center, an administration, archives, and education building serves as the repository for the MacArthur collection.
The St. Paul’s Art Planning Committee seeks to create a pre-qualified list of artists/artist teams to create large-scale, place-making experiences and site-responsive public art as part of the new St. Paul’s Transformation Project over the next two years. Artists 18 years or older of minority populations and traditionally underrepresented populations are particularly encouraged to apply.
