In the heart of the NEON Arts District is Norfolk’s cultural crown jewel: the Chrysler Museum of Art. It counts more than 30,000 works that span more than 5,000 years. And after a $24-million dollar renovation in 2014, the Chrysler is grander than ever, with two new wings. The Enchanted by Glass exhibition will showcase the legendary French glass artist Rene Lalique along with contemporary art masters like Pollock, Rothko, and Warhol (Sept. 14–Jan. 21). You might also stop by the affiliated Chrysler Museum’s Glass Studio for a lesson in glassblowing, flame-working, or kiln-casting. Norfolk’s glass art tradition continues at the Glass Wheel Studio, where director Cheryl White curates exhibits across multiple contemporary disciplines. Along the riverfront, the Hermitage Museum & Gardens newest exhibit, The Art of Burning Man, brings the Nevada-based festival’s hype to Norfolk with towering installations from seven past Burning Man artists (through Oct. 12).
