Ryan McGinness: Studio Visit @ Virginia Museum of Fine Arts

Jan 25, 2014 - Oct 19, 2014Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, Richmond

Back in 2009, Ryan McGinness installed a mural of painting panels at the entryway at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts in Richmond, Virginia. Now as a follow-up, McGinness and the museum will open "Studio Visit" on January 25, 2014, a three-part exhibition, the first gallery will provide a glimpse of McGinness’s studio practice, the second will display a selection of the objects McGinness chose from the museum collection alongside his sketches and final image, and the last portion will show early works the artist made while growing up in Virginia Beach.

The exhibition will engage a wide audience, and an exciting array of education programs will especially encourage young viewers to seek out their own favorite works in the collection and actively participate in their own process of exploration and interpretation.
