Virginia Museum of Fine Arts logo

Commonwealth of Virginia employees and preschool and K–12 teachers (public and private) can receive free admission to the exhibition Storied Strings: The Guitar in American Art at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts (VMFA) through March 19, 2023. Active-duty military and their immediate families can also receive free admission through VMFA’s year-round extension of the Blue Star Museums program.

VMFA welcomes all state employees and school teachers to see the exhibition, which includes works of art by Virginia artists. Storied Strings:The Guitar in American Art explores the instrument as a visual subject, enduring symbol and storyteller’s companion. Strummed everywhere from parlors and front porches to protest rallies and rock arenas, the guitar also appears far and wide in American art. Featuring 125 works of art, as well as 35 musical instruments, the exhibition shows how guitars figure prominently in the visual stories Americans tell themselves about themselves — their histories, identities and aspirations.

Audio-visual kiosks featuring music and filmed performances further enhance the visitor experience. As an extension of the exhibition, performances by more than a dozen recognized guitarists will be videotaped in the fully functioning in-gallery recording studio for release as Richmond Sessions ’22–’23. In partnership with In Your Ear Studios, a new recording will be released every other week on VMFA’s YouTube channel and linked on the museum’s website through March 2023.

Commonwealth employees and educators should call 804.340.1405 to make their reservations and show their employee IDs or badges at the Visitor Services Desk in the museum, when picking up their tickets. One free ticket is available per badge. Reservations for first-available tickets to the exhibition can also be made in person at the Visitor Service Desk. Tickets are scheduled to help limit gallery capacity during the pandemic.
