The natural environment plays an important role in determining the kinds of structures and spaces in which we live. It can impact everything from what our homes are made of to how they are powered and our choices of decor. This abstract art workshop examines the ways in which nature impacts our ideas of home. Participants will use mixed media techniques to explore their personal connection to the environment and how it affects the spaces where they live.

EXHIBITION

More Than Shelter

MAIN GALLERY

The essentials for human survival are food, water, and shelter. These needs take precedence over all the others. Virginia MOCA continues our investigations of basic human needs with the new exhibition More Than Shelter. Eleven artists received an invitation to participate in this exhibition. We asked each one to consider what the idea of shelter means to them and choose an avenue of investigation. The artists connected with partners who provided unique insight into their area of expertise. Shelter is both a verb and a noun. It can mean a home, a community, or the people and places that makes us feel safe and welcomed. It also means to listen, care, and to support one another, our community, our land, our minds, our society, and our futures.
