"True Likeness" Exhibition
  • Overview
  • Map
  • We are thrilled to invite you to make an appointment to visit our current exhibition, True Likeness, co-curated by Lia Newman and Tom Stanley. 

    Portraits serve as expressions of identity, popular taste, social standing, and as documents of who, when, and where. Representing one’s self in the best light or seeing others in understandable terms are motives behind why we record images of each other, whether for rituals, documentation of events, art making, or as expressions of status.

    Visitors are asked to please:

    • Make an appointment. In order to control capacity, please do not come to the gallery without making an appointment first.
    • Wear a mask. Masks are available at the gallery desk if needed. Social distancing is also required.
    • Respect limited capacity. We will ask you to wait outside the building if we reach capacity of 10 people at a time in the gallery.
    • Check in with gallery attendant. We will keep your contact information on file for two weeks in case contact tracing is needed.
    • Stay on the first floor of the VAC. Students currently enrolled in studio art classes have access to classrooms and studios, but we ask everyone else to stay on the first floor.
