Longwood Center for the Visual Arts invites you to participate as a sponsor of Dream, its 2020 black tie winter gala, held on Saturday, February 15, 2020 in the Blackwell Ballroom at Longwood University in Farmville, Virginia. The LCVA’s widely anticipated biennial gala is the best attended event of its kind in the region.

A limited number of early entry ticket packages and individual tickets are now for sale online. Please visit https://www.longwoodnetwork.com/2020-lcva-gala to make your purchase. The $275 early entry ticket package includes two tickets and entry to the gala from 7pm to midnight. Individual tickets are also on for sale for $125 each and include entry from 8pm to midnight. If you have questions or are interested in a payment plan, please contact Beverley Roberts at robertsbm@longwood.edu. Sponsorship opportunities, as well as a very limited number of reserved tables are also available. 

All proceeds support the LCVA’s community outreach programs. More than 500 attendees will delight in an elegant evening while enjoying heavy hors d’oeuvres, an open bar, and live music. A live auction, featuring fine arts and crafts, complements a sale gallery. 

We envision the LCVA as a place for everyone, and we take that "place" with us no matter where we go. The 2020 gala theme Dream, invites you to join us in letting our hopes and aspirations for the future run free.  In the past, our collective dreaming brought life to the LCVA as it exists today, whether that is an exhibition in downtown Farmville, or hands-on interdisciplinary art activity in classrooms in our 14-county service area.  We continue to dream about who we can become when we work together to be the change we wish to see in our community.
