Herons at Hoffler Creek

This past August SPPA installed and dedicated three beautiful heron sculptures in Hoffler Creek Wildlife Preserve. They were fabricated by sculptor, Roger DiTarando in Connecticut.



Support Portsmouth Public Art (SPPA) was formed by volunteers in 2010 with a mission dedicated to purchase and install public art, to educate citizens, and to create outreach to the neighborhoods in Portsmouth.


SPPA seeks to engage our citizens of all ages
to participate in the process of creating and enjoying pubic art. We are nearly 70 citizens strong and growing.


Will you join us? Your support makes our mission possible – to bring artists of all kinds together to showcase the talent, history, and beauty that is Portsmouth, Virginia. Read More >
