Museum of Contemporary Art Virginia Beach
Welcome to MOCA Virginia Beach, the area’s only Museum of Contemporary Art. Located on Parks Avenue near the popular tourist Oceanfront Resort, this museum features permanent and regularly changing exhibits ranging from paintings and sculptures to photographs and art classes. Groups typically spend around 2-3 hours exploring this art hot spot, open from 10 am to 5 pm.
One of the greatest things about sending your group here is the excellent Exhibitions and Education Department, a group within the museum that ‘promotes contemporary art makers and exposes the community to artist's ideas, to stimulate and enhance guest discourse’. Basically, this department provides some of the finest group tour and class opportunities, lectures, films, and student-teacher programming.
Enjoy interactive areas and plenty of hands-on activity to help you understand just what makes contemporary art so contemporary, the museum’s personal definition of contemporary meaning reflecting culture with radical art. Save time to see the Dale Chihuly and Matt Lively sections, as well as the outdoor sculptures and District mural panels throughout the city.
*Note: If you happen to be here during the summer (June 15-18 2017) definitely make plans to attend the Boardwalk Art Show, the longest-running summer tradition in Virginia Beach.
