Please bring your donated coats to LCVA during gallery hours, 11am-5pm Monday-Saturday and 1pm-5pm on Sundays. The Winter Warm Up donation box is located in LCVA’s front entrance, at the corner of Third Street and Main Street.

A Little to the Left: How LCVA is Able to Provide Artwork That’s Just Right

There are many rare and unique aspects of Longwood University that help make it the special place that it is to so many students and faculty & staff; various rituals and traditions enjoyed by employees and students, beautifully maintained grounds, and diverse works of art displayed in buildings and offices all across campus. This last characteristic is made possible by three staff members here at LCVA; one in particular dedicates a large amount of time, energy, and joy into ensuring this luxury is afforded to those who choose to utilize it in a program known as “Campus Loan.”

Anna Vaughn Hyatt Huntington, “Joan of Arc,” 1920, bronze, 51.5 x 31.5 x 13 inches, collection of the Longwood Center for the Visual Arts, Longwood University History Collection, Gift of the artist and her husband, Archer Milton Huntington, to the Joan Circle, 1927.1.

Jonesing for Joany: Where She’s Been & Why

For more than a year now, we at the LCVA have been asked the same question over and over, “Where is Joany on the Pony and when is she coming back?” The short answer is: storage, and now. The long answer is a bit more interesting.

Senior Spotlight: Kyle Butto

Kyle studies Graphic Design here at Longwood. For Point of Departure, he made a video documenting another interest of his: street magic.

"Out of the Box was a project that I started with a few friends and it was a fun project to get us performing street magic to people. Our intent was to pay it forward while also trying to inspire our viewers to pick up performing magic because of the benefits that it offers. Performing magic has always been an outlet of self-expression for me. It also helps with my dexterity and creativity.
