Enjoy a unique pedestrian experience of art, culture, and community.
Hear brief, artist-approved, narratives relevant to 26 artworks.

Hear brief, artist-approved, narratives relevant to 26 artworks and their creators. We begin outside the Chrysler Museum's main entrance on our 2-hour, 2-mile stroll through the streets and hidden conduits of the Neon District.

Mike will be your guide: Having hosted over 900 tours and hikes in and around my hometown of Norfolk, I've spent seven years exploring and sharing. Each artist has a story and each piece a spirit. The artists with works featured on our tour were provided with the narrative related to their work. Some responded with valuable feedback and others a kind nod. So what we will convey about the art is synced with the creator's visions and is genuine.

This is an interesting and unique tour. Our guide, Mike shared lots of interesting information about the art and artists, most of whom are local. It’s pretty cool the way the businesses have murals painted on the buildings. Lots of unique displays, some specifically representing the area. A lot of the art is contemporary which really isn’t my taste. But still pretty cool.
