From Richmond, Virginia, the Soul Expressions Band will be back at the MSV to play a high-energy mix of funk, rock, Motown, and today's hits, including songs made famous by Aretha Franklin, Stevie Wonder, The Rolling Stones, UB40, Bruno Mars, Van Morrison, Earth, Wind & Fire, and many other music greats.

Organized by Roanoke’s Taubman Museum of Art, Bill Rutherfoord: Allegory of No Region features 11 large-scale, incredibly detailed paintings that are a provocative blend of folklore, history, and art. The stories and symbolism in Rutherfoord’s work are inspired by a variety of artistic and literary figures, such American artist Jasper Johns, French poet Jean Cocteau, and folklorist Joel Chandler Harris—who is best known for his collection of Uncle Remus stories.

The 2019 Gardens at Night concert series begins with the Robbie Limon Band playing your favorite hits from the '70s.

Celebrate the opening of Tiffany Glass: Painting with Color and Light at this festive reception. Wear your casual cocktail attire in bright Tiffany-inspired colors, and see some of the most iconic and celebrated works of the famous Tiffany Studios!
