Coffee with a Curator

April 25 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 pm

Coffee with a Curator: A Public Reception and Tour with VMFA Curators, Madeleine Dugan and Sarah Eckhardt

Mark your calendars! Join us on Thursday, April 25th, at 10 am for an exclusive public reception and tour at the William King Museum of Art!

Take a tour with Virginia Museum of Fine Arts (VMFA) Curators, Madeleine Dugan and Sarah Eckhardt and experience the history of Art Nouveau in the exhibition, “The Art of Advertisement: Art Nouveau Posters of the Late 19th Century.” Art Nouveau posters pushed the preconceived notions of “fine art” and merged the gap between academic art and applied arts, and the poster craze spread from Europe to America. Then, delve into the life and legacy of Richmond native Benjamin Wigfall (1930–2017) in the exhibition “Benjamin Wigfall: Printmaking in Virginia.” Benjamin Wigfall was an artist, educator, and champion of arts equity. In this first retrospective of his pioneering career, this exhibition highlights the period from his early years in Virginia in the 1950s to his founding of Communications Village, a community art space in Kingston, New York, in the 1970s.

Don’t miss this unique opportunity to immerse yourself in these breathtaking exhibitions! Coffee will be provided.
