Inspiration and Meaningful Connection in a Recovering World
As both a performance and exhibit-based organization we at Danville Museum of Fine Arts and History are tasked to create programs and experiences that are responsive to COVID-19 and the needs of our community. While we have many ideas for programming when we reopen – the Richmond
is scheduled for July 14

We want you to feel safe when you return and there is already hand sanitizer located in each gallery and room at the Sutherlin Mansion, awaiting your return. Keep in mind that DMFAH is however not just a set of walls, but that the programming we do, and your experience of that programming, can be shared in virtual formats and a lively social media platform. There will be operational changes as we go forward and this will be communicated in a weekly newsletter to keep everybody up to date on news, views and programming. Please send your thoughts and messages to us at
