Video Tour of “Elzbieta Sikorska | Everything is Double”

Please enjoy this video tour of our current exhibit “Elzbieta Sikorska|Everything is Double”

Each of Elzbieta’s works starts out with paper that she crafts herself. She explores many themes, but classic imagery and design elements and a formal art education in Poland meet and diverge in her beautiful and mysterious ghosts, phantoms, memories, and reflections.

Dear Athenaeum friends,

Many members of our community are struggling, at home in Alexandria, in our region, in our nation and the world. We are all affected in different ways, but as we continually see with our African American neighbors, not all of us equally. Together we must stand for justice, equity, and safety for all, and here at the Athenaeum, we remain committed to ongoing programming to contribute to the health of our community.

We align with the sentiments of the City of Alexandria and the Athenaeum’s doors are open to every member of our community. Together we can bring about the changes we want to see in our society. We will use this time to listen, heal and help our community come together.

The NVFAA believes art has the power to transcend boundaries to elevate diverse voices, artistic expressions, and opportunities for active engagement accessible to all. We will be producing additional arts programming highlighting inclusivity and social justice for everyone, and we welcome your participation. Please stay tuned for upcoming programming and send us your ideas for affecting change through the arts.

The board and staff of the Athenaeum look forward to serving our community and contributing to a united and peaceful future.

Sincerely,

Veronica Szalus, NVFAA Executive Director
The NVFAA Board of Trustees
The NVFAA Staff and Volunteers
