First Fridays at the Library of Virginia | Virginia Stories: Portraits

February 1 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Join us for quarterly First Fridays at the Library of Virginia! View a display by Virginia artists, enjoy refreshments, and get creative in our makerspace. You can also explore our current exhibition, Indigenous Perspectives, and visit the Virginia Shop for books and gifts.

February’s theme is Portraits. Although portraiture traditionally memorialized the wealthy and powerful, the genre evolved over the years to feature diverse styles that portray almost any subject. View related items from our collections and explore the theme by creating shadow portraits in our makerspace.

Limited free parking is available underneath the Library at 800 East Broad Street, Richmond, VA

Artists may respond to the call for art entries for February’s event here. For more information, contact Nan Carmack at 804.692.3792 or nan.carmack@lva.virginia.gov.
