The Athenaeum: 150+/ 50+

150+ Years of History. 50+ Years of Art.

In 1965, the Northern Virginia Fine Arts Association (NVFAA) opened the Athenaeum, Alexandria's premier arts space showcasing regional artists in seven original art exhibitions each year. The Athenaeum offers concerts, poetry readings, poetry slams, dance performances, history and architecture lectures, arts demonstrations, book talks, and children's arts activities. Many of these events are offered free to the public.

Last year over 200 artists exhibited, and more than 11,500 people visited.

Admission to the Athenaeum gallery is always free, and many programs are free to the public. As part of its mission, the NVFAA is committed to preserving the Athenaeum, its beautiful 150 year old Greek Revival building. Help the NVFAA continue to showcase the arts for the next 50 years!!! Donations at the $100, $250, $500, and $1000 level receive corresponding membership benefits. See http://nvfaa.org/membership for details. Please join us in keeping the Athenaeum a vibrant part of the community!
