For the second time, the Radford University Art Museum will host a traveling exhibition from the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts (VMFA) in Richmond. “Goya, Dali, Warhol: Masterpieces of World Art from the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts” will be on campus from Jan. 19 to March 2, 2012.
The traveling exhibition continues the VMFA’s 75-year anniversary celebration showcasing dozens of timeless pieces from the museum’s permanent collection. Since 1936, the Richmond-based museum has shared its collections with citizens across the commonwealth. In honor of its 75th anniversary, VMFA organized two special exhibitions of about 50 works to travel across Virginia.

In January 2011, the university hosted the debut of the VMFA’s first touring exhibition: “Van Gogh, Lichtenstein, Whistler: Masterpieces of World Art from the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts.” Hosting both exhibitions further strengthens the relationship between the university and the commonwealth’s most prestigious art museum, said Professor Steve Arbury, director of the Radford University Art Museum.

“This is indeed an honor for the RU Art Museum,” Arbury said. “As far as I know, we are the only institution that will have hosted both shows. It demonstrates that our new facility is topnotch and can accommodate major exhibitions of art from renowned institutions.”
