Sunday, November 15th I attended an event called the Arts. It took place in Newport News, VA at the Virginia Living Museum. The event highlighted a great deal of local talent which included painters, musicians, models, cosmetologists, chefs and more. It was hosted by popular radio/media personality Dominique da Diva of 103 Jamz/106.5 The Beat.

 The museum was full of artsy professionals and VIP’s. It had catered food and a full stocked bar. What I enjoyed  most was the environment. There was so much going on and it provided for a really captivating experience. There was a fashion show, live band, painting, body art and many vendors. Whatever your interest or mood, there was something for you.

Hampton Roads has always had a connection with the arts. Musicians like Pharell and Missy all hail from the area. However, it is not always thought of as the most artistic or entertainment driven area. But, the young creators of the event reminded me of that energy! My hometown still has an overload of talent. We just need a platform! Check out some of the pictures here.  Tag and share your favorites!
