  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.

    Put the phones down! Your favorite high functioning hot mess, comedian Heather McMahan is coming to Norfolk. She’s live, liberated and lubed up. Doing the most and the least at the same damn time. Heather McMahan’s Farewell Tour… Her first, and possibly the LAST! If you don’t know who Heather is already, don’t worry you will. A beloved Instagram storyteller & the best friend everyone wants, Heather’s 2019 saw her fandom skyrocket with fans and the industry falling for her voice, her wit and her southern flair. Her audience on the platform has an average rate of engagement 4.4x higher than the average influencer on the platform and her growth has been explosive, doubling her following in just three months. Last summer Heather debuted her podcast, Absolutely Not with Heather McMahan, which leapt into the top ten on iTunes on the day of the release. Heather studied at UCB in Los Angeles and as a performing arts major at Ole Miss.
