Update from Mrs. Smith – Art

Parents and Students,

The Virginia Museum of Fine Arts has an amazing Native American Exhibit right now sharing works of art from the past and present. The contemporary pieces reflect the heritage of the past and it is a wonderful comparison.  It is free to see but it will only be on display until the 26th of November. This traveling show is not to be missed!!!  If you have time during the Thanksgiving break or need to entertain out of town guest, I suggest a visit to the VMFA!  It is easy to get to and only about 25 minutes from Short Pump, off of the Boulevard exit off of 64 East.  The Fine Arts Museum has work from all over the world, including Africa, India, China, Egypt, Greece, Rome, Europe and America.  It is open every day from 10:00-5:00!  Hope you get a chance to see some of the galleries soon!

From, Mrs. Smith, Art Teacher at Colonial Trail
