ARTlab is our interactive space for all ages located off of our main galleries. Explore the main themes and ideas found in our current exhibitions Kara Walker: Cut to the Quick and LaToya M. Hobbs: Flourish through making, sharing, and personal connections.

ARTlab consists of hands-on low-tech interactives including art making, a response station, a visitor poll, and other participatory activities. The space often includes artist material samples, process images, audio, and video. Each ARTlab also contains a Virginia MOCA Mini Library and reading nook, in partnership with the Virginia Beach Public Library which offers a selection of books that give insight into the art, ideas, and themes in the current exhibitions. Local artists are also commissioned to hand paint the title murals for each interactive, bringing more original art into the museum. This exhibition cycle, our ARTlab muralist is Sekoyah Mcglorn.
