May 27 and June 3 | The Virginia Museum of Contemporary Art will be open until 8pm on Thursday, May 27 and June 3 in an extended hours pilot program to provide greater access.
“Many people in our community have asked for more flexibility in our hours,” said Director of Audience Development, Brad Tuggle. “If you are a working parent and/or have athletic, religious, or volunteer commitments on the weekends, we may never be open when you can visit. Expanding access is a mission-based priority. We continually review operations to identify and address all types of barriers. Recent changes include free admission, bilingual audio tours, and now revised hours of operation.”
The current exhibitions have less than a month remaining on view and close on June 6. They include: Nourish, a collaboration between 12 artists and food experts from our region with new work commissioned by the Museum, American Appetite: Selections from the Chrysler Museum of Art, Real Food Films, and a Community Gallery Open Call.
“We are looking forward to it,” said Virginia MOCA Director & CEO, Gary Ryan. “If it goes well, we are looking at continuing the extended hours for the summer exhibitions.” MORE DETAILS
