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.
