Beaux-Arts Bash

Saturday, April 29, 2017 - 8:00pm to Sunday, April 30, 2017 - 12:00am

The Longwood Center for the Visual Arts invites you to participate as a sponsor of its 2017 Beaux-Arts Bash on Saturday, April 29, 2017 from 8pm–12am at the Longwood Center for the Visual Arts in historic downtown Farmville, Virginia. The LCVA’s widely anticipated parties are the best attended events of their kind in the region. All proceeds support the acquisition, care, and interpretation of LCVA’s collections.

More than 500 attendees will delight in a dance-filled evening while enjoying heavy hors d’oeuvres, an open bar, and live music with Richmond’s own En’Novation. Beaux-Arts sponsors have the opportunity to join us at 6:30 pm for an exclusive sponsors-only cocktail.

Premiere sponsorship levels include membership in the Citizen Leader Giving Society of Longwood University and invitations to Citizen Leader events throughout the year. All sponsors become members of LCVA’s Collectors Circle.

The LCVA is a 20,000-square-foot exhibition center featuring two rotating galleries that have shown works of worldwide importance, including the award-winning Reflecting Centuries of Beauty: The Rowe Collection of Chinese Art, the nationally traveled Pre-Columbian Art from the Mississippi Museum of Art, and a steady stream of solo and group exhibitions for nationally known artists such as Faith Ringgold, Jaune Quick-to-See Smith, Lesley Dill, David Macaulay, and Kojo Griffin.

The LCVA also dedicates one gallery to a permanent exhibition of stunning African art, part of the Ziegler and Brumfield Collections of African Art. In 1997 Robert Ziegler, a longtime resident of Africa, established this collection with twenty-six important pieces. In 1999, Thomas and Donna Brumfield donated an additional eighty-eight works of African art. The collection includes an impressive array of statues, masks, drums, baskets, and garments, covering four geographical areas, twelve countries, and twenty-seven cultures. A catalog of this collection, Telling Objects: African Art from the Permanent Collection of the Longwood Center for the Visual Arts, is available.
