UVA Art Museum to Reopen Friday

Posted: Updated:

The doors at the University of Virginia Art Museum will reopen Friday with a few new quirks.  The ground floor will be showcasing masterpieces and Renaissance era art.

Landscapes, 100 years of photography and 18th century porcelain will be featured on the upper level of the museum.  In celebration of Valentine's Day, Japanese woodcuts from the 19th century will be on display.

UVA Art Museum Director Bruce Boucher said, "This is a very major exhibition that will appeal both to our primary stakeholders which is the university faculty and students, but also to the diverse communities that we serve."

You can also visit most of the art virtually.
