  • Awesome and amazing art, with lots to do and see...also have classes for children and adults
  • Small but mighty contemporary art gallery. Currently have the Hi-Fructose art magazine exhibit. Well laid out and plenty of space to spend quality time with each piece.
  • Dear Moca, After much thought I’ve decided to write this letter about the most recent Moca Wine event. I’ve attended this event for years and long before the name became what it is today. I am a local resident of Virginia Beach and attend many functions in the community. This event was a disappointment on so many levels! It was overcrowded, people stepping all over each other. There wasn’t any place to sit your glass to eat. The Cabernet had run out early in the night and the rest of the wine was of poor quality. I purchased the ticket to have 2 bites of food and 1 glass of wine, unacceptable! I was with a group of 8 so we stayed until the end. We were threatened by the short chubby cop from the Sheriff's department to head out the door now or face arrest!
  • Nice small museum. They had a high fructose exhibit up with a good variety of paintings,sculptures and mixed media exhibits. Lots crammed into a small venue. Good way to spend some time if you're in the area and like art
  • Quirky and Thought-provoking Art
