Art and Museums



You may no longer be able to go into museums, but a group from 15-different Richmond area institutions still want to make sure you can engage with history. They’re proposing a socially-distanced scavenger hunt. 

Planners of a nearly 20-year art exhibit in Roanoke say they were up to the challenge when the pandemic hit.

Instead of visits to homes and studios, this weekend’s Open Studios Tour will be virtual, including live tours and exhibits on social media.

In downtown Richmond, tucked amidst the sprawling VCU hospital, is a mansion built in the early 1800’s. The building was once the White House of the Confederacy. 

Today it’s a museum, and a new exhibit in the space explores The Lost Cause.

The newest exhibit at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts in Richmond takes experiential art to a new level. The museum has recreated a famous painting of a hotel room, where guests can actually spend a night.

It’s been thirty years since The Discovery Channel began airing its infamous Shark Week. To celebrate, the Science Museum of Virginia is hosting a bunch of FIN-tastic events.
