"Flights of Fancy" Exhibit at Virginia Center For Architecture
One of the museums that is within walking distance of Maury Place at Monument is the Virginia Center for Architecture just down the street at 2501 Monument Avenue. Currently showing there is "Flights of Fancy," an exhibit of works by Richmond artist Kirsten Kindler. Through methodical and precise paper cutting and assemblage, Kirsten offers a fresh perspective of staircases. "Flights of Fancy" is an artistic and dynamic exploration of the staircase--a beloved architectural element. The exhibit is on view at the Virginia Center for Architecture through October 9, 2011. Saturday, August 20, from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. is "Family Day," during which you can create your own work of art with artist Kirsten Kindler and experiment with ideas from the exhibition to create your own work of art!
