At the Norfolk Arts Center we are helping build a stronger community by successfully presenting the arts in all their variety. We envision a community where everyone has equal access to the inspiration, knowledge, and enjoyment of the arts. We work with artists, schools, businesses, service organizations, non-profits, and government entities to accomplish our mission of “bringing people and the arts together” for the enlightenment of all.
