11. Virginia Museum of Fine Art

Whenever we visit Richmond, we try to make time to visit the VMFA. The permanent collections are terrific, and it is a very well curated gallery, but there are visiting exhibits that change every year and always a few surprises, as well. This trip was no exception and we had a lot of fun!

There is a lovely cafe that looks out over a live pond
with beautiful fish and a glass “reed” sculpture.

The building itself is beautiful. I have my favorite rooms, for sure. We plan our route through the museum to make sure we don’t miss them.

Strangely specific max for this gallery… so… since I stopped
and pondered this sign for a moment, does that make it art?
