This exhibition features the work of Amber Pierce, Poetry Jackson, and Nadd Harvin, who have been invited to participate in the 2023 Atrium Artist in Residence Program. The residency aims to support and amplify the work of regional artists while creating another entry point for Museum visitors to engage with contemporary art and ideas in connection with the main gallery exhibitions, Kara Walker: Cut to the Quick and LaToya Hobbs: Flourish. This group exhibition complements the residency program and celebrates the work of these talented artists.

The Atrium Artist in Residence program will begin on March 25 and run through June 11. Engage with working artists creating on-site inspired by our main gallery exhibitions. Artists will have mobile studios set up in the Virginia MOCA Atrium alongside an activity inspired by their process.
