Two Business Receive Matching Grants in ViBe Creative District
The Jones Family Trust has been awarded a matching grant in the amount of $5,297. The grant will fund improvements to the façade of the building by converting a large garage door into a fixed wall with an exit door and large window. The space will be transformed into a new fully equipped 16’x12’ pottery classroom with commercial glass storefront windows and door to support their future tenant, the Virginia Beach Art Center (VBAC). The VBAC will be a comprehensive art center serving the needs of the community with additional studios for artists, a dedicated art classroom, a pottery program and a beautiful, large exhibition space for monthly exhibitions.
