Best Arts Gallery

The Virginia Museum of Fine Arts

Director Alex Nyerges succinctly sums up what makes the new, recently renovated museum so appealing: “Gallery after gallery, wing after wing, of great art from all over the world, beautifully installed, beautifully lit … and major collections.” From the only East Coast appearance of a Pablo Picasso retrospective to a stunning overview of rare Nigerian art, to the museum’s own permanent collection — nothing to wince at — it’s an embarrassment of riches.
