  2. Offsite Gallery opening: WEGENER+SLOAN, a joint exhibition of sculpture & paintings by Samantha Wegener & Jazmine Sloan

    March 12, 2021, 5:00 PM - May 7, 2021, 7:00 PM @ Norfolk Arts Offsite Gallery at MacArthur Center

    Join us for an opening reception. Mixed media artist and Norfolk Public School art educator, Samantha Wegener combines ready made objects and pre-manufactured trinkets in a playful creative process sparked by inspiration from materials that best serve ideas quickly and succinctly. Put into a demonstratively visual language, vulnerabilities regarding labels she identifies with and labels others often bear are explored in her collaborative Labels project on display as part of this exhibition. Local artist Jazmine Sloan creates acrylic paintings that prompt viewers to think creatively, outside of the box, and beyond what they perceive. Her work represents emancipating yourself from the cage that is your mind. A founder of the Raven’s Fig Foundation, Jazmine strives to empower children and youth of color to express themselves creatively in visual arts and literature through the discovery of the African American culture.

  3. Hurrah Players present "Black Girl Magic"

    March 25, 2021, All Day @ Streaming online

    Black Girl Magic is a compilation of original scenes, vignettes, and poems as well as excerpts from published speeches, poems, plays, and performances that celebrate the lives and accomplishments of Black girls and women past and present, popular and underrated. It follows the struggles that often prove necessary to birth brilliance, resilience, triumph, and success; the tragedies that produce inner strength, beauty, hope, and community which continues to withstand the test of time. Black Girl Magic is not intended to exclude girls and women of other races or ethnicities. In fact, Black Girl Magic is inclusive in that it offers them the opportunity to join in this celebration of a race of women often overlooked and undervalued.
