Richmond Robins Exhibit of Fine Art

Set your calendars for beautiful this March as the Virginia Historical Society showcases the entire 19th century Hudson River School landscape paintings and colonial-era furniture collection which once belonged to local benefactors, the late Lora Robins and her late husband E. Claiborne Robins. The Robins family has made numerous considerable donations in the Richmond area, notably a four million dollar donation to build a new women's residence hall at the University of Richmond in the 1970s. Its no surprise they named it Lora Robins Court and students still reside there today.
Starting March 22, 2012 and lasting through December 30, 2012, the VHS will host gallery walks of their prestigious collection of fine art, which they have bequeathed to the Virginia Historical Society. Walks begin at noon unless otherwise indicated, admission is $6/adults, $5/seniors, $4/children. We remind our guests that Maury Place is conveniently located a short walking distance to the VHS and encourage a visit if you're in town.
