The Museum rotates works from the permanent collection, providing variety for visitors while also giving individual works a necessary “rest” during which they can be stored away from damaging light waves and receive any necessary care. Contact the Visitor Services Desk at (540) 342-5760 about a particular work to learn whether it’s on view or not.
Non-flash photography of works in the permanent collection is allowed for personal use. Photography is not permitted in special exhibitions unless noted. Flash photography, selfie sticks, and tripods are prohibited.
