We ❤️ our community and believe in the importance of art education in schools. We welcome everyone to visit the Chrysler Museum and Glass Studio. #FreeAdmissionEveryday #Repost @neonnfk ・・・ "We're an urban school, and we thrive on that. To be able to walk across the street to the museum is an integral part of the curriculum and who we are. The kids love the art in the NEON. They love the skateboarding. They feel comfortable here." - Suzanne Pugin, the director of Ghent Montessori School, which is across the street from The Chrysler Museum. #ghentmontessori #neonnfk #montessori

On International Women's Day, we honor the women who began our museum. Our story starts in August 1871 when Irene Leache and Annie Wood established the Leache-Wood Seminary, an all-girls school in the heart of Norfolk. As writers, teachers, and art collectors, the two spearheaded discussion clubs, poetry readings, and other intellectual offerings to enrich the arts in Norfolk. In 1901, following Leache’s death, Wood created the Irene Leache Memorial Foundation, which nurtured a growing art collection for a future museum. In 1917, the Norfolk Society of Arts was formed and, along with @hermitagemuseumva founder Florence Sloane, its members led the efforts to open the Norfolk Museum of Arts and Sciences in 1933. In the late 1960s, Norfolk native Jean Outland Chrysler presented her hometown as the ideal place for her husband Walter Chrysler Jr.'s extensive art collection. The Norfolk Museum of Arts and Sciences welcomed Walter’s collection and was officially renamed the Chrysler Museum of Art in 1971. Jean herself established one of the largest art research libraries on the East Coast. You can visit the Irene Leache collection on view on the second floor of the Museum, attend a Norfolk Society of Arts lecture (the next one is March 28), and visit the Jean Outland Chrysler Art Library to pay homage to our founding women. And this is only part of the story. Our galleries, Glass Studio, and staff are enlivened by women working to make a difference every day. Share with us your favorite women artists, arts educators, or loved ones who appreciate the arts. #InternationalWomensDay #ChryslerMuseum #IWD18 #NorfolkVa
