The @vmfamuseum looks cool from any angle. The #VMFA is one of our favorite places to visit in #RVA. It’s open 365 days a year and general admission is always free. You can even spot the #Chihuly reeds from here! #aerial #rvalove #urbancampus #vcu #richmond #museum #art #fromabove 🚁 Photo by Allen Jones, University Marketing (at VMFA Virginia Museum of Fine Arts)

This is a fantastic view of the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts. The new exhibit, Forbidden City: Imperial Treasures from the Palace Museum, Beijing, opens on October 18th and runs until January 11th. This was a good semester to take Survey of Asian Art!

One of our very own VCUarts students won the i.e.* Go Bike! design contest! John Sampson, a sophomore in Graphic Design, submitted this beautiful design that represents the convergence of the 75 nations that will travel to RVA to compete in the 2015 World Cycling Championships. Congrats John!! You can check out his personal statement here.

I love Richmond because art is everywhere, even on most of the people you see. The tattoos and hennas provide brief insights into people and their interests. I have not yet tried either but I’m a big fan and its something I’d definitely like to play with in the future.

As you guys may or may not know, we have a sister campus in Doha, Qatar. This week, a group of their students have come to visit us! Part of their annual trip to the states is hosting Qatar Day, a really cool event that offers insight into the culture in Qatar. There will be a camel named Tully, which means you should definitely go.

Julie Heffernan’s Sky is Falling series | Heffernan captures a post-apocalyptic world utilizing traditional renaissance oil paint techniques. 

These paintings are currently showing in our very own Anderson Gallery. Originally built in 1930, it has served as a gallery space for VCUarts since 1970. Although it will likely be repurposed once our Institute for Contemporary Art opens, the Anderson Gallery continues hosting some awesome exhibitions.

Seen in Rosewood Pottery Studio

Rosewood is not only a fantastic place for clay/ceramics students to buy supplies, but also offers artists in the community with wheels, kilns and more. As a Craft student, I love going to Rosewood to look at new types of clay and glazes. If you’re into clay or ceramics at all, it’s definitely worth a look.
