Remembering Queena

Duration: 
(01:19:09)

This special program celebrated the opening of the Virginia Museum of History and Culture’s exhibition, "Inside Looking Out: The Art of Queena Stovall," and incorporated art, music, stories, and pie!

Storytellers, musicians, and family members commemorated the life and legacy of well-known folk artist, and Lynchburg, Virginia-area native, Emma Serena “Queena” Stovall. The program, like Queena’s artwork, brought to life the culture of Amherst County, Virginia, in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains.
