The Virginia Museum of Fine Arts (VMFA) is a state-supported, privately endowed educational institution created for the benefit of the citizens of the Commonwealth of Virginia. Its purpose is "to collect, preserve, exhibit, and interpret art, to encourage the study of the arts, and thus to enrich the lives of all." The siteâ€™s homepage provides a variety of resources to experience the rich array of the VMFA's holdings and programs. In the Collections area, visitors can look through representative examples of their items from the ancient world, Africa, ancient American art, and twelve other areas. In the Learn area, visitors can take advantage of online art tutorials and learn about VMFA programs throughout Virginia. The Exhibitions area contains links to a range of images and printed materials that relate the stories of their current, past, and upcoming exhibits, such as "Indian Silver for the Raj" and "Say What? How Ancient Writing Began."
