Qué harás

We'll start with an overview of the history of the NEON. Like, why is it sometimes called "Historic Auto-Row?" and "What's up with all the big windows in the storefronts?"

Then we'll start off viewing the largest mural in the District, walking up Granby Street to take in the heart of the neighborhood. We'll explore Magazine lane, which is an alleyway peppered with more than a dozen murals.

We'll discuss the role of local high school and university students in the public art process, and consume some of their art along the way.

We'll learn about the evolution of the NEON, how public art has changed the area, and what's coming next!

Hello! I'm Josh, and I'm the founder and owner of Norfolk Tour Company. We are the official NEON District tour providers for Downtown Norfolk Council, and are here to bring the magic of public art to you!

I am a Norfolk native and have been giving tours since 2013. My areas of expertise include local history, local art history, the process of public art curation, historic cemeteries, military history, and architecture.

More than anything, I'm a storyteller, and I can't wait to share them with you. Norfolk has a LOT of stories, so strap in folks! We're about to explore the burgeoning NEON (New Energy of Norfolk) District and take in all the fascinating murals and sculpture that pepper the neighborhood.

Donde estarás

We'll jump right into the art, viewing the interactive cement mixer/kaleidoscope symbolizing the "foundation" of the NEON. Next, we'll view the geometric mural "Razzle," the NEON's largest mural and one of the most colorful and striking visual sin all of Hampton Roads. Next we'll creep down "legal alley," which is covered in spray-painted graffiti works. We'll discuss the rise of graffiti art and why some local businesses are encouraging it.

An informative, enjoyable, laid back experience. The presentation of facts about the artwork/artists were interesting and showed that Joshua has a passion for art.

So glad this popped up along side my Airbnb rental - I love graffiti and my 14yo daughter and her friend thoroughly enjoyed this walk. The artwork was amazing, but also, Josh's extra tidbits of info gave our walk something we could not have ascertained if we were just walking around ourselves. The special lighting effects he described makes me want to come back at night and see more!

Joshua was a great guide. He arrived on time and we started the tour promptly. Once he realized that the rain would interfere with our tour we quickly walked to the Chrysler Museum. There, he toured us through his favorite exhibits in the museum. Joshua was knowledgeable and personable. He was patient with my questions about the mural art and within the museum. When we got caught in the flooding near the museum because of all the rain, Joshua ensured I got home safely. I look forward to having Joshua finish the mural tour next time I'm in Norfolk.

This was such a fun tour! My partner and I really enjoyed touring the NEON District and learning about a form of art that we were very fascinated by but had never had a chance to explore it in depth. Josh was so sweet too. You can tell he has fun with what he does and his knowledge base about the subject was extensive. It was just the 3 of us so it was basically a private tour. He even took us inside the Chrysler museum of art before it closed and highlighted his favorite pieces. Overall a great time-we are so happy we did it and would definitely recommend this experience!

The tour with Joshua was truly great! Joshua is a very verse and intelligent gentlemen who is passionate about history, art and literature. His tour is one of a kind because he’s from the area and knows about local arts and culture. He knows the history behind every art work in the NEON district with is quite impressive. My son and I truly enjoyed his educational tour and took many pictures of the art walls of the city! Joshua is patient, cultivated, and eloquent. I appreciated the fact that he also waited on us (in the hot sun and extreme humidity) because we ran late without getting upset. He managed to still give us the best tour of the district! I highly recommend him to anyone! Great individual, knows everything about the NEON district and historical themes behind it. Loved my tour!
