We are excited to announce the area's premier visit from the all-new VMFA ArtMobile, re-instituted after a 20+ year hiatus. Part of S. New Street will be blocked off on the afternoon of the Opening of the Annual Juried Youth Art Show on February 24 so guests can board the huge truck to enjoy the artworks and interactive displays. The state-of-the-art traveling museum and education space will then re-locate in the vicinity of our co-host, the Shenandoah Valley Governor's School in Fishersville where visiting schools may be accommodated over the course of two days, February 25 and 26. Appointments for groups on Monday and Tuesday between the hours of 9:00am and 2:00pm are required by calling the Art Center (540-885-2028) by February 11. At other times, drop by and take full advantage of this opportunity to have one of the finest museums in the country come to our area!
