Hullihen Williams Moore, VMFA On the Road
Virginia encompasses 554 of the more than 2,180 miles of footpath that form the Appalachian Trail-more than any other state. Hullihen Moore spent twenty years photographing a series of scenes of the Shenandoah, a project connecting the beauty of the wilderness to the beauty of its history. His exquisite photographs convey a sense of personal and natural history, while revealing the artist’s visual emotional relationship with the landscape. This video and his photo, Appalachian Trail and Mist, Shenandoah National Park, 1994 can be seen onboard the Artmobile as part of its new traveling exhibit, A View from Home: Landscapes of Virginia.
VMFA’s state-of-the-art traveling museum and art studio launched in October 2018. The climate-controlled 53-foot Volvo trailer includes Wi-Fi to connect visitors with VMFA educators and interactive components to meet their 21st-century expectations. The main attraction of VMFA on the Road, however, is the opportunity for residents of the Commonwealth to see and experience works of art from the VMFA collection up close. 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.
Beginning Spring 2020, VMFA on the Road will feature the exhibition A View from Home: Landscapes of Virginia. The paintings, photographs, woodblock prints, and engravings from the museum’s permanent collection represent various styles and periods. Featured artists include Adele Clark, Hullihen Williams Moore, George H. Benjamin Johnson, Miwako Nishizawa, and others. A View from Home takes the place of VMFA on the Road’s first exhibition, How Far Can Creativity Take You: VMFA Fellowship Artists, which included works by Sally Mann, Cy Twombly, Dennis Winston, and others.
