The Valentine Moment Campaign is a multi-year, $16 million effort to strengthen our understanding and presentation of Richmond’s significant history. The campaign includes a strategic plan to renovate our storage facilities, create a new public reading room, and review the 1.6 million objects in our collection to make sure each object tells an important Richmond story. The project also includes the reimagining of the Valentine Sculpture Studio and an endowment component to sustainably support the museum’s ability to serve the community for future generations.
Construction is underway with a targeted completion in Fall 2023.
To learn more about the campaign and how you can support the Valentine in this important moment, contact LaChelle M. Lewis, Director of Development, at 804-649-0711 ext. 339 or email@example.com.
