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


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.
Here’s the thing about Burning Man – it really burns.
Be there to see it happen.
Some things to remember about
parking at Old Beach Markets

With thanks for copy to Old Beach Farmer’s Market:
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.Motorists who park in other lots or who block driveways do so risking tickets and towing, including the Wareing’s Gym and Mary’s parking lots on Cypress Avenue at 18th and 17th Streets.
