Let There Be Light is proud to have the support of the Virginia Museum of Fine Art. This year VMFA on the Road will showcase the exhibition Love, Laughter, Tears: An Artist’s Guide to Emotions. This compilation of works from the VMFA collection examines the relationship between art and emotion across various cultures and time periods to explore human emotion as a unifying and universal factor.
In the aftermath of the pandemic and amid growing societal divisions, emotions, empathy, and self-reflection hold greater significance. Emotion and expression have always been integral to the creative process of artmaking. Artists convey emotions through their use of color, shapes, symbolism, and text. Artworks can reflect an individual’s emotions or the wider mood of a culture or historical period, shedding light on events and their impacts on people. The power of art lies in its ability to communicate these feelings and messages, fostering conversations and understanding among individuals and communities.
VMFA on the Road: An Artmobile for the 21st Century provides residents of the commonwealth the opportunity to see and experience up close authentic works of art from the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts. VMFA on the Road is traveling to remote corners of Virginia by way of the museum's Statewide Partners program, which includes 1,000 locations - from community centers and small museums to colleges and universities.
