The Kiwanis Club of Danville Foundation recently awarded a grant to the Danville Museum of Fine Arts and History to transform the old gift shop into a children’s room for art and history education. The motto of Kiwanis is “We Build”. The Kiwanis Club of Danville Foundation utilizes this motto when selecting organizations that are requesting funding grants for capital projects. Projects selected usually involve children and youth activities. The 2014 Kiwanis Foundation award to the Danville Museum of Fine Arts and History is an example of such a project. This grant is for the structural renovation of a space for interactive activities involving cultural arts and history specifically for younger children.
The Danville Museum of Fine Arts and History has installed a new exhibit about the history of the Confederate flags. Entitled “Divided Lines: The National Flags of the Confederacy,” the panels enhance the museum’s permanent exhibit, “Between the Lines: Danville 1861-1865, Drifting Towards Disaster.” The five colorful panels not only detail fascinating facts about the creation of the Confederate national flags, but also have vignettes of local interest and about flag design. The exhibit was made possible by the Danville Regional Foundation.
