57th Annual Boardwalk Art Show

http://www.zapplication.org/fair_logos/1755.jpegIn 1952, a small group of artists presented an outdoor art show at the Virginia Beach boardwalk, with the proceeds benefiting a fellow artist who had fallen ill. Those artists later formed an organization which is today the Virginia Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA). In 1956, the first official Boardwalk Art Show was held. Top prize was $25 and 104 artists participated. Today, Best in show wins $10,000 and the Boardwalk show is ranked as on of the top 100 outdoor art shows in the country.
