The Art of the ViBe 3
FEBRUARY 11–AUGUST 7, 2022

VIRGINIA MOCA GROUNDS
MAY 21–SEPTEMBER 4, 2022
If we can't see the problem, how do we understand or change it? In fall 2021, Virginia MOCA invited students from Virginia Beach, Norfolk, Chesapeake, and Portsmouth public schools to dig into the ecological issues facing Tidewater, Virginia. Using the design thinking model, students researched, designed, and created site-responsive, environmentally conscious, public art installations for the Museum grounds.
ATRIUM ARTISTS IN RESIDENCE EXHIBITION
JUNE 11–SEPTEMBER 4, 2022
This exhibition features the work of four artists who are participating in month-long residencies exploring environmental themes in conjunction with Maya Lin: A Study of Water. This group exhibition complements the residency program and celebrates the work of these talented artists.
ARTISTS WE LOVE¬
Wayne White is an American artist with an expansive practice. Among his many roles, White is a studio artist, art director, illustrator, and puppeteer. His upbringing in Chattanooga, TN has often served as inspiration for his work. White is well known for his word paintings which feature large text blended into found landscape paintings. White's messages pokes fun at contemporary culture and reference his Southern roots.
We are thrilled to announce an upcoming collaboration with the artist—the sale of signed, limited-edition prints to benefit the Museum. White’s selected work, and original word painting titled The Melted Bag of Words in the Parked Car of My Mind, will be released on May 13 as an archival pigment print with only 250 editions available.
