More about the Sidewalk Art Show

Voted “Best Art Event” by Virginia Living magazine, the show will feature over 100 artists from across the East Coast with works of art for sale.

Every year since 1958 the Sidewalk Art Show has celebrated and supported the creation of original fine art, as well as provided funds for the museum’s education and outreach programs.
