DOWNLOAD PRESS RELEASE

 

Workhouse Arts Center is pleased to welcome the VMFA on the Road vehicle on Saturday, November 10th from 6pm – 8pm!

In 1953, Virginia Museum of Fine Arts was among the first museums in the world to create what was then called the Artmobile. During its lifetime, the Artmobile program circulated 60 exhibitions and served over 2.5 million people. As the originator of this concept, VMFA will offer its own, re-authorized version of the exhibition, in fact a 21st century version of its famous creation. Both a mobile museum and studio, the VMFA on the Road vehicle will be outfitted with a themed exhibition based on Virginia Standards of Learning, incorporating authentic works of art created by VMFA Fellowship winners alongside digital interactives featuring selections from VMFA’s permanent collection, and allowing an exploration between and among these works of art. In-depth interviews with the artists, VMFA curators, and educators, historical information, and comparisons with other objects from the collection will be included in the interactive experience.
