vmfa

I’ve lived in Richmond for about ten years now and at first, I was preparing myself to leave as soon as I could.  I thought that I could be happier living in the DC area or possibly moving back to the Northeast, preferably my native NJ/NYC area or Boston.  But after many years here, I’ve fallen in love with this city.  It’s an enticing mix of history, small-town vibes, local pride, contemporary fashion and art, all within a tolerable city scale.  I am always finding something new to experience and it seems as if my list is never-ending, between local cafes/restaurants/bars/breweries, shopping, rivers and trails, and other attractions.

Now for the time that I’ve lived in Richmond, there are many things that I still haven’t seen or done, including going to the VMFA.  Richmond’s embracing of art is one of the main reasons that I love the city so much and I don’t know why it’s taken me this long to finally see the VMFA.  I’m not going to bore you with a detailed description of the exhibits I saw and which works of art were my favorites, but I’m simply going to just share some photos of my favorite moments.  Enjoy : )
