Join us for the free opening event, taking place in conjunction with Open Studio Sunday. A Closer Look goes beyond the surface of six works of art from VMFA’s collection to investigate how art can be an expression of personal, cultural, or a spatial identity; how different cultures throughout time represent history and identity through art; and what histories are publicly told and which are hidden. Activities include a virtual reality demo with the team from Hidden In Plain Site™ and an art project celebrating Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month. No tickets required!
