The Main Arts Weekend

Click to learn more

The Main Arts Weekend will include displays of artwork from institutions across the region. Works from the Chrysler collection to be on display will include a Nick Cave Soundsuit and exquisite sculptures by Elizabeth Catlett, Deborah Butterfield and Nam June Paik. Our world-class glass collection will be represented by works ranging from the fine (antique crystal goblets) to the fun (a glass art cheeseburger and fries by John Miller).

Here's a chance to have some fun, get an exclusive first look at Norfolk's newest luxury hotel, and enjoy—and support—the arts at the same time.

The opening weekend for the new Hilton Hotel downtown, The Main, will feature art installations, theatrical performances, concerts, and more.

All ticket proceeds are tax-deductible contributions that will go to support local art organizations. The goal is to raise $1 million.

Make plans now to enjoy exquisite dining, lively entertainment, fine art, and exceptional company. There are a variety of packages available covering the entire weekend, and tickets are also available for single events.
