Introduce Richmond Kids to Arts at Michelangelo Exhibit

MichelangeloWe’ve all heard about the fantastic works of Michelangelo, and now we can experience some of his works in person. Michelangelo works are now on display at William & Mary’s Muscarelle and will be on exhibit to the public. This exhibit is considered the most important Michelangelo show seen in the U.S. in decades.

“Michelangelo: Sacred and Profane” will be on view at the Muscarelle through April 14, 2013.

What a wonderful way to introduce children to arts in the Richmond area!

This once-of-a-lifetime chance to see these works so close to home is being organized in honor of the 30th anniversary of the foundation of the Muscarelle Museum of Art at the College of W&M. The Muscarelle Museum of Art at the College of William & Mary is located on the grounds of the second oldest college in the U.S., a highly ranked liberal arts and research university – and just a short drive from Richmond, VA.

This exhibit will investigate and highlight the artists’ innermost philosophy as revealed in original and incredibly beautiful, insightful drawings.

Introducing children to the works of Michelangelo’s breakthtaking drawings is a unique way to introduce them to fine arts. Children under 12 are free. They will enjoy exploring the beautiful W&M campus during their visit and it’s adjacent to Colonial Williamsburg.  This is also the perfect event for tweens and teens.

Making this a family outing for culture, exploration, and fun is a great get-away.
