The Longwood Center for the Visual Arts is the only museum of its kind, scope, and size in the area surrounding our home base, Prince Edward County. The commitment to improving the quality of life in the region by providing full access to the visual arts is the heart of our mission. At the LCVA, we believe there should be no barriers to exploration of the visual arts. Admission to the LCVA and its programs is – and always has been – free for everyone.
LCVA is the art museum of Longwood University. Located in downtown Farmville, LCVA serves as a physical, intellectual, and cultural bridge between the university and our community at large. Longwood University’s mission, “to transform capable men and women into citizen leaders, fully engaged in the world around them,” forms the foundation of our mission and values.
