Current Featured Exhibitions

Art of Freedom II is an invitation for patrons to experience artists’ works that represent the ever changing atmosphere of our society such as successes, failures, war, and disease related to and because of things like the COVID-19, Black Lives Matter, and removal and additions to monuments and public art.


RVA Community Makers is an annual public art project presented by the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts and led by artist Hamilton Glass. The project honors African American leaders from a variety of fields. 


In addition to our permanent exhibitions, we feature new exhibitions several times a year.
