Visual Arts are all around you in Norfolk, Virginia. For over 10 years, the Norfolk Public Art Program has helped shape Norfolk’s identity by fusing the downtown area and surrounding neighborhoods with over 70 public art projects. We’ve identified over 100 ways to experience visual arts during the month of October. Not only will you find art in galleries and museums, you’ll find that many establishments are bringing visual arts to the forefront every day all year long. It is with good reason Norfolk is called the Cultural Capital of Virginia.
