Exhibition: Classical Allure: Richmond Style


What: Exhibition: Classical Allure: Richmond Style

Where: The Valentine Museum, Richmond VA

When: May 3, 2015-January 31, 2016

“For the inaugural exhibition in the new Nathalie L. Klaus and Reynolds Family Galleries, the Valentine introduces classically inspired treasures from its remarkable collection of costume and textiles. The exhibition explores themes personified by Libertas, Ceres, Virtus, and Aeternitas, the four Roman goddesses that adorn the Virginia state seal, in an examination of the classical forms that endure in Richmond fashion.”
