For the second time, the Radford University Art Museum is hosting a traveling exhibition from the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts (VMFA) in Richmond. “Goya, Dali, Warhol: Masterpieces of World Art from the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts” will be on campus through March 2, 2012.

In January 2011 the university hosted the debut of the VMFA’s first touring exhibition, drawing more visitors to the Radford University Art Museum during its first month than the venue had seen in the previous 12 months combined. Hosting the second exhibition strengthens the relationship between the university and the commonwealth’s most prestigious art museum, said Professor Steve Arbury, director of the Radford museum.
