Art Acquisition

Summer Art Acquisitions

The following artworks were approved by the VMFA Board of Trustees in June 2013. VMFA is a state agency and a public/private partnership. All works of art are purchased with private funds from dedicated endowments. After VMFA’s board approves proposed acquisitions on a quarterly basis, the art becomes the property of the Commonwealth of Virginia to protect, preserve, and interpret.

When the expanded Virginia Museum of Fine Arts re-opens to the public May 1, everything about the museum will be bigger, brighter and – with free admission – more welcoming.
