WHAT’S HAPPENING

Dominion Energy wind project on TODAY

“NBC Sunday Spotlight” by Kerry Sanders

Coastal Virginia Offshore Wind Project

Completion: 2026 | NBC News’ Sunday TODAY recently highlighted the Dominion Energy Coastal Virginia Offshore Wind Project. This project will construct a large-scale, pollution-free wind power plant off the coast of Virginia and could become a model for generating clean energy. One revolution of a turbine could create enough energy to power a house of a full day.

MORE DETAILS about the project via Dominion Energy.

Made in VA

November 27–March 6 | Virginia Museum of Contemporary Art
The tradition of celebrating regional artists through the annual juried exhibition, “New Waves,” has existed for more than 25 years. Virginia MOCA has never lost the goal of keeping ties with the talented artists who live close to our doors. As our community evolves, so will the museum and its traditions: This year “New Waves” has become “Made in VA.” The new title reasserts a commitment to Virginia artists. Virginia MOCA will continue to bring together jurors who are at the top of their field with the talented contemporary artists found in the Commonwealth. With the new name come changes intended to strengthen our award program and provide opportunities for the growth and professional development of the selected artists. DETAILS

Virginia Opera: La Boheme

Virginia Opera Fall Season

Virginia Opera, The Official Opera Company of the Commonwealth of Virginia, has events scheduled for the fall.

Beginning in October, Earth to Kenzie is a series of free performances at a variety of locations. Rounding out the latter part of the month is Virginia Opera’s Wednesday Wind Down, a lawn concert series on the steps of the Harrison Opera House in Norfolk.

November marks the return of a fan favorite with La Bohème: Rodolfo Remembers. This is an intimate take on Puccini’s classic, full of emotion and some of the most memorable pieces in all of opera. A perfect introduction to anyone curious about opera.
