⭐️Take a look at this Summer Art Camp being sponsored via funding from the 2023 Coastal VA Plein Air farewell event!

🌟We are excited to announce that sufficient funds were raised again this year, and Norfolk Arts will be partnering with Coastal VA Plein Air on a 2nd public art project coming to Ocean View in 2024/25!

In 2021, funds raised were used to purchase watercolor sets for every Ocean View Elementary School student. They also provided 1/2 of the funding needed to commission sculptor Eileen Gay to create “Chryshellis”, an 8 ft. glass and tile mosaic for Ocean View Beach Park.

This is the 5th partnership to take advantage of existing public art funds and the second partnership working with Coastal Virginia Plein Air. Other artwork partnership projects have been with the Elizabeth River Trail Foundation for artwork behind the Larchmont Library by DeeDee Morrison, a Sentara Brock Cancer Treatment Center project completed in 2023, a pending project being planned with Marathon Development Group and a project at EVMS that was cancelled but re-initiated in 2023.

The Ocean View Partnership Project committee is:
Juanita Smith, Community Representative
Monica Van Dyke Johnson, Community Representative
Sally Clarkson, Public Art Commission
Devon Lawrence, Public Art Commission
Jennifer Sanford, Public Art Commission
Joanne Taylor, Community Representative
Yvonne Wagner, Public Art Commission
