Saturday’s tour will focus on the history of business and commerce in the Commonwealth.
This weekend, the Virginia Historical Society will offer a rare behind-the-scenes look into its collections–this time, the tour will focus on the history of business in Virginia.
From the news release:
Andy Warhol once said, “being good in business is the most fascinating kind of art. Making money is art and working is art and good business is the best art.”
Remember browsing through the Best Products catalog, dreaming of a Lane cedar chest, or shopping at Miller & Rhoads and Thalhimers? Over the years, Virginia companies have been successful at making art out of good business.
Join us for a behind the scenes tour on Saturday, October 25, at 10:30 a.m. Investing in the Arts: Collections of Virginia Businesses will take guests into areas of the society not normally open to the public as we learn more about the history of making money and good business in the Commonwealth.
The tour begins in the new Carole and Marcus Weinstein Learning Center.
Tickets are $10 for VHS members and $17 for non-members, and you can purchase them here.
