What’s New

The Canoes by Donald Lipski

Floating on the rich tides of history and art, our newest sculpture inspires and welcomes visitors to the Chesapeake Bay area.

Donald Lipski's The Canoes was installed on the pedestrian overlook of the new Lesner Bridge late July, 2018. The Canoes uses 10 full-size aluminum canoes with elaborate filigree lace patterns, a nod to the decorative arts of the early settlers.


Terrapin Basin by Benjamin Heller

The Virginia Beach Office of Cultural Affairs, in partnership with Virginia Beach Parks & Recreation and the Chesapeake Bay Foundation’s Brock Environmental Center, commissioned Heller for a residency through mid July to create Terrapin Basin. As a resident artist, Heller is creating his work on site, and is available to the public to demonstrate his process.
