Annual Boardwalk Art Show

Boardwalk Art Show   June 15th – 18th

Come join us for the 62nd Annual Boardwalk Art Show and have a fun time with family and friends while enjoying fine art, great food and live entertainment.

The Boardwalk Art Show is hosted by the Virginia Museum of Contemporary Art. MOCA is a non-profit, non-collecting institution, which means the artwork in the galleries changes every 3-4 months.

It’s main mission is to promote exploration and understanding of the significant art of our time.  So while you won’t see Old Masters at the art show or museum, you’re guaranteed to see something cutting edge and different! MOCA also offers a variety of educational programs and classes for the community.

Proceeds from this event directly support the Virginia Museum of Contemporary Art and help fulfill our mission to provide thought-provoking art exhibitions and children’s art education programs. In the last decade, MOCA has provided exposure to the arts to over 100,000 children in Hampton Roads.

This year join us on the boardwalk to meet amazingly talented artists and see their work up close. While here, join in the fun at Family Fest or at the Beer Garden and enjoy live entertainment throughout the weekend. If you’re looking for a special treat, purchase tickets to the Boardwalk Beach Club for a catered lunch, valet parking, private bathrooms and open bar. Whatever your interest, you’ll have a great time in Virginia Beach this Father’s Day weekend.

Sandbridge Shelling

Seashells… Down by the Seashore
“One cannot collect all the beautiful shells on the beach. One can collect only a few, and they are more beautiful if they are few. One moon shell is more impressive than three. There is only one moon in the sky.” – Anne Morrow Lindbergh, ”Gift From the Sea”

One of the most relaxing pastimes at the beach is to clear your mind, stroll slowly with loved ones along the shoreline, while gathering seashells on the beach. Sandbridge is the perfect place for shelling offering a quiet, secluded 5 mile stretch of beach to explore. The casual shell collector can enjoy shelling year round… even during the off season. Here are a few tips to make your shelling expedition even more fun:

Best Times to go Shelling:
Experts tell us that low tides, and the times of the new moon and the full moon, bring the best shells. If you visit immediately after a storm, you’ll find that the rough waves and strong currents will dislodge shells in shallow water and toss them onto the beach.

What To Bring for Shelling:
If you’re going to do any serious shell collecting, be sure to bring a strong mesh or canvas bag to carry your finds — shells can get heavy very quickly. You’ll want to bring along water and sun protection, as well as your basic beach gear. It helps to bring along lightweight beach or water shoes to protect your feet so you can explore areas along the tide line where shells are arranged in thick bands.

What Shells to Collect:
Keep in mind that an inhabited seashell is a sea creature’s home! Please don’t remove an occupied seashell, or live starfish, from the beach. If you find you’ve picked one up, don’t throw it into the water – place it gently down to avoid damage. Abandoned seashells, of course, are fair game. You’ll find beautiful ones in gently-used condition along the coast.Read More
