John Mooney (VA, 1843-1918), Luray Caverns, n.d., oil on canvas. Collection of the Longwood Center for the Visual Arts, American Art Collection, gift of Bob and Margaret Mayo, 2016.2.15.

Highlighting works from the LCVA’s permanent collection, Main Street Museum: Virginia Landscapes and Sites considers the commonwealth’s narratives and natural beauty. In combining familiar landmarks in Richmond with the serene Blue Ridge Mountains and the coast, the works invite visitors to delve into the landscapes first hand. Maps and coordinates will be provided of the landscapes so that visitors can see for themselves what the site looks like and compare it to the artist’s representation.
