ART DISPLAY...Radford City Mayor Bruce Brown and his wife, Cary, examine the painting "Wheat Field Behind St. Paul's Hospital, St. Remy" by Vincent Van Gogh. The painting is one of many currently on display at Radford University as part of "Van Gogh, Lichtenstein, Whistler: Masterpieces of World Art from the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts." Van Gogh, other artistic masterpieces on display at Radford University through March 4 Community leaders and of- ficials from the Virginia Mus- eum of Fine Arts (VMFA) and Radford University gathered on Thursday evening, January 20, for a preview of "Van Gogh, Lichtenstein, Whistler: Master- pieces of World Art from the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts," an exhibition commemorating the museum's 75th anniversary. Supported by Altria Group, the "special exhibition is open to the public and is featured in the Radford University Art Mus- .eum, located in the Covington ~Center for Visual and Perform- ing Arts, from January 21 through March 4. Admission is ~free. The exhibition features the work of about 30 artistic masters from around the world. Featured pieces include those from mas- :ters such as Post-lmpressionistic ]con Vincent Van Gogh, Am- erican impressionist James Ab- bot McNeil Whistler, pop artist Roy Lichtensten, and contemp- ~orary artist Sally Mann. During welcoming remarks, Radford University President Penelope W. Kyle told guests about the history and 18-month planning process associated with licly recognized several individ- uals who played a special role in bringing the collection to Radford University, including University Centennial Steering Committee Co-Chair and VMFA Board of Trustees Member Barbara-lyn Morris '65, Chair of the Radford University Art Department Richard Bay, and VMFA Director Alex Nyerges. "Suddenly we at Radford were getting stars in our eyes," KylO said, referencing the kinds of cultural opportunities plan- ners envisioned for the com- munity when the Covington Center for Visual and Perform- mg Arts opened in 2009. "Now the stars are not just in our eyes," said Kyle. "They're on our walls." Hosting the classic exhib- ition is a wonderful opportunity for Radford University to provide southwest and southside Virginia residents with a chance to see timeless works of art they may not have otherwise seen in their lifetimes, according to Kyle. During comments presented later in the evening, VMFA Director Alex Hyerges discussed the museum, its 75"' anniversary the exhibition. Kyle .also .pub.- :,..celebration and~ expressed his THE COLLECTOR'S gratitude and excitement about partnering with Radford Uni- versity on the venture. Built in Richmond in 1936, the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts was designed with one pur- pose in mind, according to Nyerges: to serve as the state's flagship art museum and head- quarters for an art educational network bringing masterpieces from throughout the ages into every corner of the common- wealth. With the success of the VMFA exhibit, Bay sees unlim- ited potential for the RU Art Museum to establish itself as a major destination "hotspot" for the art community. "I want this to be the first of many (special exhibitions)," said Bay. "There's so much more we can now make happen." To be selected by the VMFA to house the exclusive art exhib- ition, the RU Art Museum was upgraded to include improved climate control systems mus- eum-standard lighting and enhanced security measures. RU Art Museum hours are Monday thru Friday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; and Saturday and Sunday from noon to 4 p.m. For more information, call 540-831-5754. GEDTesting Blitz set for CORNER ByJfMMyW B Tin canisters, tin cans, or tin boxes, or whatever anyone ?wishes to call them, have been around for many years. Even Napoleon offered a reward to any person that would develop a "safe way to preserve food for his Army, for they could not fight on ;an empty stomach. The tin can did not come into .'every day use in this country until about 1910. Dagget and Kensett patented their containers :in the 1920's. After that other "companies began manufacturing all sorts of tin cans, to hold "different things. Tins were made to keep biscuits, coffee, tobacco and many other perishable foods, Eresh, you name it, they made it. Most of the old eye catching ~tins that were made long ago, are now collectible items. Allen's Food Talcum, price range, $8- $10; Belfast Tobacco tin rectangle, $20-$25; Big Ben Tobacco can, $12-$15; Nice biscuit tin cans are very scarce, retail price, for the Anvil Macfarlane Co. tin box, from 1911, $50-$60; Negro Butler, Southern Biscuit Co. from the 1920's, $20-$25; Biscuit tin box made in the shape of a fiddle; Macfarlane Lang & Co. from the early 1900's, $25-$30; Blue Bird Coffee tin, $25-$30; Typewriter ribbon, Columbia Carbo Co. tin box $6-$8.
