The City of Norfolk’s Public Art Program will debut Norfolk’s newest public artwork MetalMatisse this weekend.
Jessy Davis showed up in my art universe like the Pegasus, which sprung forth from the blood of Medusa fully formed and raring to go. That's not to say that before we met she wasn't already extremely successful as a working artist--she was. What I mean is, when I finally met her at Better Block a couple weeks ago, I thought, 'How do I not already know this woman?!'
When we came up with the concept for the Found Art Exhibition, I was genuinely concerned that we'd get a bunch of maccaroni paintings and garbage-laden sculptures, and that TFC Recycling (the project's sponsor) as well as Norfolk City Hall (the exhibition venue) would not want to have anything to do with me ever again.

I stood on my feet, clapping and cheering, as the Birminham Royal Ballet dancers took their final bows for Saturday night’s performance of Coppélia. I turned to see that everyone in the audience was standing and cheering like I was. As I looked around, I reflected on the superb and sparkling performance that BRB presented at Chrysler Hall.
Les Miserables first opened at the Barbicare Theater in London on October 8, 1985. Upon opening, It received some rather awful reviews from the press, but all the while managed to sell out and blow theater-goers away with its powerful story and evocative music. Over 25 years later, the show has been running there ever since, making it the second longest running musical in the world!
