ARTIST'S BLOCK AT VIRGINIA MOCA

Virginia MOCA

REGISTER

A dynamic pop-up art experience curated by Virginia artist Jeff Tarkenton, the event brings together the creative community of Southeastern Virginia and features Virginia artists showcasing and selling their work, along with live music and food. Originating over 8 years ago as an art block party, the event cleverly plays on the double meaning of ‘Artist’s Block,’ celebrating both the physical gathering space and the creative challenges artists face.

FREE! Registration encouraged.
