Literature and fine arts come together with the African American Read-In at VMFA. See and hear notable figures from the greater Richmond community as they lend their voices in prose and poetry readings. In this powerful display of storytelling, experience evocative and poignant pairings of works by African American artists and authors.
To adapt to ongoing safety concerns related to COVID-19, VMFA will host this year’s AARI event virtually over
the span of four weeks. Tune in weekly to hear from community leaders and curators about works in the VMFA
collection and the connections that can be made to literature. Please note: registration is required for each date of the event.
The VMFA African American Read-In is presented by CHASE.
