VA Museum Collaborative Virtual Convening

You’re invited! Is your museum planning activities to commemorate the Nation’s Semiquincentennial? Join us for the first virtual convening of the VA Museum Collaborative to learn more about the VA250 Commission’s plans and to share your ideas. VA250 National Honorary Chair Carly Fiorina will give opening remarks, Executive Director Cheryl Wilson will share goals of the Commission and Collaborative, and Director of Engagement, Public Programming, & Interpretation Kate Egner Gruber will invite museum participation in the July 4th VA250 Independence Day at the Virginia State Capitol.

VAM is honored to facilitate the VA Museum Collaborative to support VA250 efforts throughout the Commonwealth. This advisory body will both provide feedback from the museum community to the VA250 Commission and share news from the Commission with our museums throughout the Commonwealth. Chaired by VAM Past President Scott Stroh of George Mason’s Gunston Hall and current President Karen L Daly of Stratford Hall, the VA Museum Collaborative will convene quarterly, typically virtually, through the 2026 anniversary of the birth of our nation.

Mark your calendars for July 4th! VA250 is planning a vibrant "Square Fair" at the Virginia State Capitol kicking off at 4:00 pm, featuring a dynamic showcase of Virginia's rich history and culture. We're inviting museums and cultural organizations like yours to participate by hosting interactive booths or tents. This is a fantastic opportunity to engage families with hands-on activities, demonstrations, workshops, and other programs that explore the theme of freedom and its diverse interpretations throughout Virginia's story.
