The LCVA is so grateful for our gala chairs, Jackie and Chris Sadler!
"[We] support the LCVA because it is community focused and brings together a rich and diverse group of people. The LCVA is a place where all are welcome. The LCVA provides great art and education to all and provides our town and South Central Virginia with exhibits and programs one would not expect to be available in a town of this size."
"We are excited by the whole gala experience. We have such a committed group of folks working hard and having a good time doing it. This is going to be a spectacular event; we have a great theme, great decorations and a signature drink. I am looking forward to the whole atmosphere of the event."
The LCVA is the only museum of its kind, scope and size in the 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 interdisciplinary programs to more than 60 public, private and home schools in 14 South Central Virginia counties. Each year our educators travel more than 2,500 miles to bring the visual arts to thousands of PreK-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.
To help LCVA continue to offer its many wonderful programs and events, become a sponsor for our 2020 Biennial Winter Gala.
