Boardwalk Prize Fund


Be a part of the longest running art show on the east coast by contributing to the artist prize fund for MOCA's Boardwalk Art Show presented by PNC. More than $25,000 in cash prize awards are distributed to artists every year. The awards also attract a new crop of high-caliber artists each year, which keeps the show fresh and exciting!

Your donation will be acknowledged in the official show program; donors at the $250 level or higher are invited to enjoy the Artist Awards Ceremony on Saturday night, where you can announce your award, meet the artists, and congratulate the winners in person.

The Boardwalk Art Show presented by PNC has been produced by the Virginia Museum of Contemporary Art (a 501 c-3 non-profit) since 1952. It is ranked 3rd best art show in the country by industry publication Sunshine Artist Magazine.

To contribute to the Boardwalk Art Show presented by PNC Prize Fund, please email Frances Loyer, Annual Giving Officer or call the Institutional Advancement office at 757-425-0000 x.324.
