Culture Connection News & Updates

Culture Connections: June 26-July 2, 2017

 

In Charlottesville, The University of Virginia’s Fralin Museum continues its exhibition Grasping at the Ephemeral: Explorations on Change from the Permanent Collection. This exhibition is an anthology composed of vignettes on change. Each piece chosen from The Fralin Museum of Art’s permanent collection has yet to undergo the process of conservation treatment. With the help of the people’s voice and generosity, they hope to be able to maintain accessibility of one of these displayed objects for future study, research, and teaching.

Amazement Square in Lynchburg presents their Great Artists/Tangram Transitions workshop this Friday at 4 p.m. Tangram is a puzzle game that consists of seven pieces, or tans.  These seven pieces fit together as a square but can be rearranged to create other shapes. Participants are encouraged to explore their creativity and create abstract or figurative pieces of art.

In Harrisonburg, the Virginia Quilt Museum  presents “World War I Quilts” curated By Sue Reich in Galleries I, II & III. In 1917, the outbreak of World War 1 focused much of our nation’s quiltmaking on the humanitarian efforts to provide for our soldiers and the Red Cross.  The Red Cross quilt is the hallmark quilt of World War I. When the flu epidemic began in 1918, the government put a ban on joining together in groups, bringing quilting bees and Red Cross work to a virtual halt.
