LCVA is delighted to have the support of our 2020 'Dream' gala sponsors, Virginia and Brad Watson!
Virginia and Brad mentioned, "We have been involved with the LCVA for many years, serving on committees, on boards, and just visiting as patrons. The LCVA is located in the heart of Downtown Farmville, and is an integral part of our community. The many exhibits, lectures, and events invite people to our area who then eat and shop locally. The LCVA is a major catalyst for bringing art and artists to Farmville which, in turn, makes this a better place to live."
The Watsons are looking forward to the gala's live auction and sale gallery. "We try to purchase at least one thing at every gala. It allows us to add to our collection, and brings beauty and creativity into our home. It’s also an occasion that allows us to get all dressed up: something that has become more rare with each passing year."
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.
