We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then is not an act, but a habit.
The Longwood Center for the Visual Arts is the only museum of its kind, scope and size in the 7,000- square-mile area surrounding our home base, Prince Edward County. Our commitment to improve the quality of life in the region by providing full access to the visual arts is the heart of our mission.
At the LCVA, we believe there should be no barriers to exploration of the visual arts. Admission to the LCVA and its programs is – and always has been – free for everyone.
In addition to presenting inspiring and conversation-starting exhibitions within our walls, we take the LCVA on the road to bring programs such as Have Art, Will Travel and ART Kids to more than 60 public, private and home schools in 12 South Central Virginia counties. Last year our educators traveled 2,291 miles to bring the visual arts to thousands of K-12 students in the community!
While the LCVA is generously supported in part by Longwood University, approximately 60% of our operating budget is derived from private individuals, businesses, and charitable foundations. We also rely heavily on our volunteers. Through their unwavering support, our organizational capacity has been able to keep pace with our goals.
