WHAT: Exhibition: "Art Beyond the Classroom: Selections from

the Curriculum Support Fund"

WHEN: Saturday, April 13 through Sunday, June 30
WHERE: U.Va. Art Museum

The special exhibition, "Art Beyond the Classroom: Selections from the Curriculum Support Fund," opens Saturday, April 13, at the University of Virginia Art Museum and runs through Sunday, June 30.

Since 1985, the provost’s office has allocated funds for "curriculum support," the acquisition of works of art for the museum’s collection that serve the academic needs of faculty in the McIntire Department of Art.

This annual fund has made possible the purchase of Roman coins, Old Master and contemporary prints, South Asian works on paper, photographs, paintings and sculpture. Occasionally, works by visiting artists in the Art Department, such as Eeva-Liisa Isomaa, Italo Scanga and Bogdan Achimescu, are acquired.

This first major exhibition from the 17-year history of the fund underscores its significant impact on both the development of the museum’s collections and on its collaboration with the Art Department.

The University of Virginia Art Museum is open to the public without charge Tuesday through Sunday, 1 to 5 p.m. The museum is located on Rugby Road, a short distance from the Rotunda. Limited parking is available behind the museum.
