There was a steel drumming band for an event hosted by Virginia Beach Public Schools. The art work featured local students

The admission price is low and it's a nice way to do something different than the beach, boardwalk, or beer. We saw the Todd Schorr (Atomic Cocktail) exhibit, which was really fun. It was close to closing time, so the place was almost deserted.

Ample free parking and worthwhile to spend an hour to view the limited exhibit space for free. Didn't think the price of admission was worth it for the remainder of this small gallery.

We were expecting more than two artists’ work to be exhibited. The building itself was well done with a grand entrance and a theater that seated a crowd. Perhaps the additional rooms were being prepared for additional art, but they were closed.

As a collector of collections, there is always something new and exciting to see at MOCA. (If you've flown into ORF - Norfolk Airport - you will have seen some of the artists' works displayed). The gift show has some local artisan works that you...More
