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.

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. 

Gala sponsors and their ticketed guests have the opportunity to join us in advance of the gala opening for an exclusive sponsors-only reception, which includes early access to the sale galleries. Premier sponsorship levels, which begin at $1500, include membership in the Citizen Leader Giving Society of Longwood University and invitations to Citizen Leader events throughout the year.

Sponsorship installment plans are available from less than $3.00 per day.

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.
