The Arts

The Arts can open the doors of imagination, stir powerful emotions, offer a respite from a busy life, make strangers talk and children ask questions. Whether it's a traveling exhibit, hands-on classes, a Broadway show or a toe-tapping musical, there are plenty of opportunities to explore the arts in Newport News!
