We offer some highlights below, and for a full list of activities check out our Events Calendar. Remember that it's business as usual at the Glass Studio and Moses Myers House.
At the Suffolk Center for Cultural Arts
The talented young artists at our Glass Studio get their very own exhibition. Come see what's brewing in the minds of the upcoming generation of glass artists. The exhibition runs from May 3 to July 20, and the arts center is located at 110 W. Finney Ave. in downtown Suffolk. For more information, visit www.suffolkcenter.org.
Let's Go Shopping
At the Selden Arcade
These works from the Chrysler Museum Collection are organized on a retail theme and provide an insightful look at a universal human experience. Eras and cultures may change, but shopping endures. The Chrysler’s Selden Arcade gallery is open Tuesday through Saturday, 10 a.m.–5 p.m., and admission is free. The Selden Arcade is located at 208 E. Main St. in downtown Norfolk, and this exhibition will run from March 19 to June 8.
At The Willoughby-Baylor House
Here is an intimate way to see more than 50 of the Chrysler’s best American paintings and sculptures. In this 1794 home you'll see works by John Singleton Copley, Albert Bierstadt, Susan Watkins, and Winslow Homer. Guided house tours each Saturday and Sunday at 2 p.m., and for more information, click here.

The Moses Myers House
Two Added Attractions
This historic home gets two extra features for 2013. Adeline's Portal is a conceptual art installation by Beth Lipman that re-imagines the life of Adeline Myers in glass objects. Classical Traditions is a selection of works from the Chrysler collection that would have looked right at home in the house in the year 1800. There are free guided talks and tours at the home every Saturday and Sunday afternoon.
The Mobile Glass Studio
At Events All Across Hampton Roads
Our Mobile Glass Studio will be hitting the road in 2013 to share the magic of live glassblowing with audiences across Hampton Roads. The fully functional studio includes a propane-fired crucible and glory hole, an annealing kiln, and talented artists who can explain the wonders of the glassmaking process while putting on a show.
