Memorial Day Closure

TCC will be closed Monday, May 27, in observance of the Memorial Day holiday.


Tidewater Community College believes that exposure to the arts enriches the fabric of our students’ lives. TCC wants to magnify the impact of the visual and creative expression in the Hampton Roads community by providing a rich array of exhibitions, performances and cultural events that are open to all of Hampton Roads.

Our venues include the Visual Arts Center, the TCC Roper Center in downtown Norfolk, and the Black Box Theatre on the Chesapeake Campus. We hope you will join us at an upcoming event!
