Cavaliers Collect

08/28/2015 to 12/20/2015
Curated by Bruce Boucher, Director

A celebration of The Fralin's 80th anniversary in 2015, Cavaliers Collect will consist of loans from U.Va. alumni with distinguished art collections as well as works that reflect the broad range of The Fralin's own collections. Featuring a variety of genres from Asian to contemporary art, we hope the exhibition will capture the artistic interests of U.Va. alumni, faculty, parents, and friends of the Museum.

The diversity of works presented mirrors the diversity of the Museum's friends and patrons: works on view will include artists such as Jan Gossaert, Anthony van Dyck, Robert Henri, Picasso, and Roy Lichtenstein. In addition, there will be a special gallery devoted to non-Western art. This stellar exhibition will celebrate a special anniversary in The Fralin's history as well as its role at the heart of a great university.

The Fralin Museum of Art's programming is made possible by the generous support of The Joseph and Robert Cornell Memorial Foundation.

The exhibition is made possible through the generous support of U.S. Trust, The Fralin Museum Volunteer Board, Arts Enhancement Grant from the Office of the Provost & the Vice Provost for the Arts, co-sponsored by the U.Va. Arts Council: Enriching the Arts on Grounds, WTJU 91.1 FM, albemarle Magazine, and Ivy Publications LLC's Charlottesville Welcome Book.
