The Virginia Museum of Fine Arts is getting 250 new pieces of artwork to add to their permanent collection.
Notable pieces of work come from several artists, including Nick Cave, Frederic Edwin Church and Hale Woodruff.
“We are thrilled to add these wonderful works of art to VMFA’s collection. The Church and Woodruff represent transformative additions to the American art collection, while Bill and Pam Royall’s gift of Nick Cave’s Untitled (Soundsuit) is the latest in a series of landmark donations that they have made to the museum’s collection of Modern and Contemporary Art. Their commitment to living African-American artists dovetails perfectly with our strategic plan and we are immensely indebted to their extraordinary vision and generosity,” said VMFA Director Alex Nyerges.
