VMFA’s “3 in 30” Programs

Explore three art objects in 30 minutes. VMFA’s “3 in 30” programs are offered on the first Tuesday (in-person) and Thursday (virtually) of every month. Curators and educators discuss works in the permanent collection and in special exhibitions, considering different themes found across the collection, artistic movements, or a single artist’s body of work. “3 in 30 PLUS” is an expanded version of this program where two speakers come together to present a program that is one-hour long. The “3 in 30” programs are free and open to the public.
