Known internationally for its outstanding collections of world art, programs, and exhibitions, the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts now shares the history of its Richmond, Virginia, campus. Across Time explores the complex, layered story of the site’s inhabitants, including native peoples and English colonists; an elite antebellum family and the enslaved people who labored for and sometimes escaped from them; and the nation’s best-known Confederate veterans’ home, born out of a spirit of reconciliation. The twentieth century brought an innovative scientific research institute, the parceling of property for various benevolent and cultural institutions, and the Commonwealth of Virginia’s flagship fine arts museum. Today VMFA’s award-winning architecture, historic buildings, gardens, and green spaces invite visitors to engage with the past, examine the present, and imagine the future.


About the author: Elizabeth L. O’Leary, Ph.D. is an American studies and art history scholar residing in Richmond, Va. VMFA’s former Associate Curator of American Art, she is the lead author of American Art at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts.
