Enjoy signature cocktails, beer, wine, and hors d'oeuvres; music by a local DJ; and after-hours access to the galleries. 

Pick up a signed copy of The Story of Virginia: Highlights from the Virginia Museum of History & Culture, a hot-off-the-press publication and the one that inspired Fresh Paint. The authors will be on-hand to talk more about their work.
