Virginia Beach Art – Old Beach Art Market

Old Beach Art Market | Virginia Beach VA

It’s a beautiful Red, White and Blue Weekend.
Put on your most patriotic accessories and visit the
Memorial Day Weekend
Old Beach Art Market

 

Memorial Day, once known as Decoration Day,
started in earnest around the time of the
American War Between the States.

The date for Memorial Day was chosen specifically
because it was not the date of any significant battle and therefore remembers all who died in defense of our country.

It became an official Federal Holiday in 1971.

Old Beach Art Market takes a moment to
thank the BRAVE who keep us FREE.

Lots of pretty things to catch your eye, brought to you by:

Kym Bach
Shannon Calley
Lori Cicogna
Amy Cummings
Hillary Davenport
Carla Fuller
Suzanne Jeffers
Tommi Long
Madison Snyder
Jaime Stykemain
Mallorie Terranova
Emily Warden
Bob Wright and Beth Wray
Kenn Young

and, in their Art Market Debut –
Amy Jiggetts
Courtney Walton

All we need now is YOU!

While you’re in The ViBe be sure to check out the 10 murals in 10 days. Here are 3 to whet your appetite.

Awesome!

The surfer was painted entirely with spray paint. Wow.

Parking is generously donated by these local businesses and city parking lots: the grass lot behind Wave Riding Vehicles along 19th Street; the Runnymede parking lots along Cypress Avenue at 20th and 21st Streets; and the Virginia Beach Convention Center lot at 19th Street and Parks Avenue. On-street parking is now available along 18th Street west of Cypress Avenue.

Here’s an interesting note from our friends at MOCA:

ARTS MAKE A MAJOR ECONOMIC IMPACT IN VIRGINIA BEACH

Did you know that last year, the arts generated $87.7 million in Virginia Beach alone?

This spending supported 2,875 jobs, generated $52.5 million in income to local residents and returned about $7 million to local and state governments in the form of tax revenues.

This data was recently shared in the Arts & Economic Prosperity 5 study conducted by Americans for the Arts and supported by The Ruth Lilly Fund of Americans for the Arts.

The Art of Burning Man at The Hermitage Museum and Gardens closes tomorrow night. Tickets are require. $50 until 8:00 p.m. today. $75 at the gate.
