Wanderlove: A Stitch in Time

July 4, 2021 thru September 26, 2021

The Danville Museum of Fine Arts and History has teamed up with the Massey Cancer Center, Danville Pittsylvania County Chamber of Commerce, Danville Parks and Rec, the River District Association, the Dan River Basin Association as well as many other civic organizations, on one of the largest and most ambitious community knit projects in the region. 

This fiber, knitting & crocheting collaboration by the Danville Museum of Fine Arts and History, recognizes the building of community found within the age-old practice of gathering to assemble fabric and knitted pieces in small groups. This interactive winter community project, produced from January through June, celebrates and reflects people’s many different backgrounds and experiences. Participants are invited to collaborate in the making of a "Yarn Bombing" installation along the Danville Riverwalk, and share their COVID19 stories. 

Visitors participating from home are invited to create their own assembled yarn covering, using materials you have on hand – T-shirt fabric, thread, and recycled sweaters! Knitted, crocheted and constructed fabric contributions will be added to our "WANDERLOVE: A Stitch in Time" Yarn Bomb installation in the summer months of July 4 – September 26, 2021 creating an assembled reflection of the community in bright, joyful colors.

Gallery Space at 536 Craghead Street in River District:

Beginning in November 2020, the 536 Craghead Street Gallery open its doors to DMFAH fine arts exhibitions in Danville’s River District, to complement the Museums regular programing at its Main Street facility. 

Rick Barker Properties has recently restored the Venable Building’s (c. 1899) commercial storefront at 536 Craghead Street. Before this space is made available for lease, it is being offered as a gallery space featuring a solo exhibition by David A. Douglas in November 2020. The DMFAH’s Craghead Street Storefront Gallery will present two fine art exhibitions in collaboration with the museum to promote the visual arts in Danville, Virginia. This collaboration is consistent with the artistic rhythm of The 500 Block, a development project focusing on the restoration of eight antique commercial buildings. 

Reverend Venable, the building’s first tenant and eventual owner, was a black minister who operated a restaurant on the ground floor and resided on the second floor. The upcoming art exhibitions will bring activity to the building, not seen in decades.
