Dear Patrons of the Arts,
We are excited to share our ICONIC season and eleventh year of building community through the arts. From theatre to dance to photography and music, join us as we celebrate icons and their lasting impact and contributions to the performing arts.
Even our iconic building, which stands at 2410 Wickham Avenue, continues to serve as a culturally diverse and visionary backbone for creative genius in Newport News. Our new season has something for everyone. We look forward to finding new ways to expand old partnerships and exciting ways to create new ones.
On behalf of my colleagues, Michelle Gilliam and Shera White, and the entire creative team at the Downing-Gross Cultural Arts Center, we once again will celebrate the very best of our community has to offer through the arts.
Joanne Palmeira, Cultural Arts Superintendent
