  2. Chrysler Museum – If You Thirst for a Homeland: Flame-worked glass by Dafna Kaffeman

    August 12, 2021 - December 12, 2021 @ Chrysler Museum of Art, Glass Project Space

    Inspired by nature, the art of Dafna Kaffeman conveys the complexities of life in modern Israel. Kaffeman creates exquisitely crafted plant replicas using flame-worked glass. These botanical specimens reflect the natural world of the artist’s homeland. The glass plants are combined with Hebrew and Arabic words printed or embroidered on soft white fabric, including handkerchiefs which are often associated with Jewish cultural practices of celebration, commemoration, sacrifice, and mourning. Each plant the artist renders in glass has its own cultural and historical meaning.

  4. Chrysler Museum – Pier Luigi Nervi: Art and Science of Building

    October 1, 2021 - February 27, 2022 @ Chrysler Museum of Art, McKinnon Galleries

    This year marks the 50th anniversary of Norfolk’s greatest modern building: Scope Arena. Designed by renowned Italian architect Pier Luigi Nervi in collaboration with local architectural firm Williams and Tazewell, its soaring struts lift the dome and paradoxically let light in from below, not above as in traditional domed structures. This exhibition will follow Nervi’s career as an architect in Italy through many projects, including airplane hangars, cathedrals, exhibit halls, and skyscrapers, giving visitors an understanding of the unique architectural achievement of Scope and its place in the history of modern architecture.

The money raised during these events helps pay for rent, transportation, food, furnishings, unmet medical care, and more for people with developmental disabilities in Norfolk, Chesapeake, and Virginia Beach. Stockley is a communal celebration, a beloved tradition that has remained constant over the years, withstanding recessions, weather, hurricanes, and now COVID-19. We're proud to give the community one of the best outdoor arts festivals in the area. In fact, the Stockley Gardens Arts Festival has been voted one of the top two art festivals in eastern Virginia by Virginia Living Magazine readers five years in a row, so don't miss the upcoming Stockley Gardens Fall Arts Festival. It's a good time for a great cause.
