The City of Virginia Beach recognizes that the arts tell a community's story, reminding residents and visitors of what makes a city different and special.
Public art has the power to energize our public spaces, arouse our thinking, and transform the places where we live, work, and play into more welcoming and beautiful environments that invite interaction.
The City of Virginia Beach's public art program enhances our city's identity as a community that supports and promotes creative expression. It builds our sense of civic pride and enriches our quality of life. Forty-two pieces of public art are currently on view in a variety of mediums, displaying inspired subject matter and demonstrating continued commitment to showcasing many different artists.
