Please join us at the LCVA on June 1st from 5:00 to 8:00pm for an opening reception for Arc: The Longwood University Alumni Exhibition.
This juried exhibition showcases more than 60 years of the creativity of Longwood University graduates. Arc considers many themes and topics, such as memory, family, myth, and the supernatural.
Arc: The Longwood University Alumni Exhibition will be on view from June 1 to August 4.
This exhibition is presented in partnership with the Department of Theatre, Art and Graphic & Animation Design, and made possible in part by the office of Alumni and Career Services.
All LCVA exhibitions and programs are made possible through the generous support of the Wells-Fargo Foundation, the Walter J. Payne Foundation, Anne Carter & Walter R. Robbins, Jr. Foundation, the E.B. Duff Charitable Lead Annuity Trust, Southside Electric Cooperative, Walmart, Julie Kline Dixon and Guy Dixon, Navona & David Hart, Real Living Cornerstone, Helton House, and Haley Auto Mall.
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.
