Fresh Paint: Murals Inspired by the Story of Virginia

October 27, 2018 @ 10:00 am - April 14, 2019 @ 5:00 pm

This unprecedented exhibition brings together original large-scale artwork created by Virginia-based artists with historical objects, books, letters, diaries, and photographs from the museum’s world-class collection of nine million items representing the story of Virginia. The walls inside the Virginia Sargeant Reynolds Gallery will be transformed with fresh paint and expressive reflections on Virginia’s past. Using the mural aesthetic to blend the present with the past, the exhibit is the first of its kind for a history museum in the Commonwealth.
