Brief Description

The City of Virginia Beach Office of Cultural Affairs, in partnership with the African American Cultural Center of Virginia Beach (AACC), is looking to create a dynamic, site-specific work of temporary public art that reflects the Center’s mission to connect, preserve, and celebrate Virginia Beach and Princess Anne County’s African American culture dating from the mid-1600s to the present. The artwork will inform and educate the public about African Americans’ achievements in business, politics, religion, city organization, to include African American history as well as inform Hampton Roads that this is the future site of the AACC. The AACC will be the regional leader in generating historical and cultural content through programs, artistic performances and curated exhibits.
