Public Art Dedication "Chryshellis" by Eileen Gay

Saturday, October 30, 2021

Join Norfolk Arts & Coastal Va. Plein Air for the dedication of their Public Art Partnership Project "Chryshellis", an 8ft. tall sculpture by Eileen Gay. The planning committee selected Eileen to create artwork that represents the authentic, salty integrity of Ocean View. The sculpture, with a curved shell-like exterior, encases a porcelain and glass tile sunrise mosaic. The contemporary, forward-thinking artwork embodies the meaning and history of the area, and highlights Ocean View's uniqueness, natural beauty and great beaches.

This is the 2nd Private Partnership match project Norfolk Arts will install. Coastal Va. Plein Air raised half of the funding for this project.
Norfolk Arts continually seeks private developers to partner with them. Up to $25,000 is available.
