VMFA reopens with 2,500 additional pieces of art and 50 percent more exhibition space.


Virginia Museum of Fine Arts reopens May 1, offering more art nearby By Bethany Emerson


arytown has long been known for its artsy style, and come May, a new parking deck with more than 600 spaces will provide a tangible link to the renovated Virginia Museum of Fine Arts. It will allow Richmonders and out-oftowners “to park once and experience the treasures of VMFA as well as the mile-long array of shopping and dining experiences in Carytown,” says Suzanne Hall, VMFA’s chief communications officer. The museum’s grand reopening May 1 brings a close to five years of extensive renovations, adding more than 165,000 square feet and 2,500 pieces of new art. The parking deck, which is three blocks from Carytown, will have a $3 all-day rate, with banners directing visitors to the nearby shopping district. The $150 million expansion was designed

with walkers in mind. Its centerpiece is the from one end of the building to the other pristine James W. and Frances G. McGloth- and then to the streets beyond. Previously, VMFA included a 13.5-acre lin Wing, crafted by architect Rick Mather to bring art to the street through a 40-by-70- complex of five different buildings, but the McGlothlin Wing connects the existing foot window that overlooks the Boulevard. “This is not a museum that stops at these structures. Walkways allow visitors to enjoy four walls,” says Bob Tarren, VMFA’s direc- the art by period or genre in circular paths. “That’s a huge departure from going into tor of marketing. “The outside is as impora room and seeing art and going to another tant as the inside.” Guests are ushered into the Louise B. room,” Tarren says.

traits by Andy Warhol and Chuck Close. Must-sees include a 26-ton white-marble pavilion recently imported from Rajasthan, India, located in the South Asian art gallery on the third level. Also new to the museum is a Ryan McGinness commission that measures 8 feet by 32 feet. Installed on the wall of the McGlothlin wing entryway, the work, Art History is Not Linear (VMFA) is made of 16 panels of layered iconographs. Also of note is the Worsham-Rockefeller bedroom, a fully furnished 1880s room in the style of the British Aesthetic Movement. The lower level includes a 12,000-square-foot gallery for special exhibits, starting with a collection of about 170 works by Louis Comfort Tiffany on display May 29 through Aug. 15. Lower-level exhibits are ticketed ($12 to $15 for the Tiffany exhibit). “What VMFA intends to do is meet each individual’s desire for relevant art,” Hall says. “It could be wandering in the Chinese galleries ... drinking cappuccino in the Best Café or surfing the Internet in the Robins Sculpture Garden.” On May 1, the grand opening will start with a ceremony at 10 a.m., followed by tours through midnight. On May 2, tours will run from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. All weekend events are free and open to the public. The VMFA will be open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily and 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Thursdays.

— 3201 W. Cary St. • 358-5170 — Ten Thousand Villages is a nonprofit Fair Trade store located in the heart of Carytown. They offer a wide variety of handmade items from around the world, including jewelry,

Established in 1993, World of Mirth began as a funky little vintage and novelty shop determined to provide a shopping experience that was an alternative to the main stream. Through the years we have held on to that desire to offer more and have happily matured into what is often described as a place where Dr. Seuss meets Pee Wee’s Playhouse with a product mix for kids as well as kids at heart. Always kidfriendly, always cutting edge, our shelves are chock-full of cool stuff to entertain, educate and amuse.

— 3122 W. Cary St. • 359-9642 — Yoga Source, Carytown’s hidden jewel, offers a wide variety of yoga classes and workshops for all levels of interest and expertise. Classes such as Iyengar, Vinyasa Flow, Beginners, Prenatal, Relax and Renew, Gentle and Yin are all scheduled throughout the week. Yoga Source also brings internationally recognized instructors to Richmond to lead specialized weekend workshops throughout the year. A 200-hour Yoga Alliance-certified Teacher Training program runs from September through June, and the Yoga Boutique, with the most extensive collection of yoga gear and props in the area, is always open!
