When the Virginia Museum of Contemporary Art called for artists to submit work for their Block Party exhibit, three of Dr. Miele’s family members answered the call. His daughters Alexandra Whiteside and Jennifer Miele, and son-in-law James (Jimi) Whiteside, each submitted a piece relating to Hampton Roads, as they see it.

Block Party opens on Thursday, September 12th with a reception from 6-8 PM. Look for “Sunday Stroll in Williamsburg” by Alexandra, “It’s a Jimmy” by Jimi, and “Fort Monroe/Child’s Play” by Jennifer.

While Jimi and Jennifer have not publicly exhibited artwork in the past, Jimi’s surrealist works are held in private collections, and he is known in Japan for his work on the Dragon Ball Z figurines.

Alexandra has exhibited her photography at the Norfolk Botanical Garden, Waterside Festival Marketplace, and the Major Hillard Library in Chesapeake. Currently, seven of Alexandra’s photographs are on view in our clinic waiting area.

Join us this Thursday* at MOCA in Virginia Beach to view our version of Hampton Roads — we’d love to see you there!

*Can’t make it Thursday? Don’t worry — the show lasts through December 29th.
