VMFA Artmobile at Henricus
The VMFA is taking their Artmobile on the road to Henricus and admission is FREE! Those who visit the Artmobile will receive a $2 discount to Henricus Historical Park. Henricus will also be offering their walking tour “Beyond the Palisades – The Unknown History of Dutch Gap” which will explore the Civil War, Revolutionary War, and WWI history of the area at 11am and 1pm.
VMFA’s state-of-the-art traveling museum and art studio gives the opportunity for residents of the Commonwealth to see and experience works of art from the VMFA collection up close. VMFA on the Road is traveling to remote corners of Virginia by way of the museum’s Statewide Partners program, which includes 1,000 locations—from community centers and small museums to colleges and universities.
VMFA on the Road will feature the exhibition A View from Home: Landscapes of Virginia. The paintings, photographs, woodblock prints, and engravings from the museum’s permanent collection represent various styles and periods. Featured artists include Adele Clark, Hullihen Williams Moore, George H. Benjamin Johnson, Miwako Nishizawa, and others. A View from Home takes the place of VMFA on the Road’s first exhibition, How Far Can Creativity Take You: VMFA Fellowship Artists, which included works by Sally Mann, Cy Twombly, Dennis Winston, and others.
For the duration of the COVID-19 crisis, the Artmobile gallery may accommodate up to 10 people, students and adults included, for 15-minute visits. All staff and visitors are required to wear masks.
