This year the Virginia Museum of Contemporary Art celebrates its 23rd juried exhibition, New Waves 2018. Virginia MOCA is honored to support contemporary artists from our region. The Commonwealth of Virginia holds a vast array of artistic talent, only which a small portion is highlighted in this exhibition. Virginia MOCA would like to thank our juror, Cay Sophie Rabinowitz, and all the artists who submitted entries to New Waves 2018. Virginia MOCA is proud of the lasting New Waves tradition.
