In recognition of the VQM's current Mary Spitzer Etter exhibit, the Museum is excited to partner with Harrisonburg's Spitzer Art Center as the host of this year's "Art on the Lawn" kick-off breakfast. Enjoy a FREE light breakfast and coffee at the VQM while viewing the Spitzer exhibit, and then head west (just a 3 minute drive or 12 minute walk) to Spitzer Art Center.

Housed in and around Mary Spitzer Etter's family home, the Art Center's second annual "Art on the Lawn" event will feature indoor and outdoor art demonstrations, children's activities, live music, and food.  A fun and free event for the whole family!
