NEW WAVES 2019¬

MARCH 23, 2019–AUGUST 18, 2019

This year the Virginia Museum of Contemporary Art celebrates its 24th juried exhibition, New Waves 2019. Virginia MOCA is honored to support Virginia’s contemporary artists. The Commonwealth holds a broad scope of artistic talent, with a diverse use of materials and approach. This exhibition showcases a small portion of that talent. Virginia MOCA would like to thank our juror, Carmen Hermo, and all the artists who submitted entries to New Waves 2019. The Museum is proud of the lasting New Waves tradition.
