We’re pleased to share the news that the ICA’s first-floor gallery will be named for Beverly W. Reynolds, who has been a tireless advocate on behalf of the ICA and its capital campaign. She is a well respected gallery owner and arts advocate in Richmond who has been a longtime supporter of VCUarts and VCU. In fact, the ICA project was born more than 15 years ago due in large part to Bev’s urging of VCUarts’ dean at the time, Rick Toscan.
More than 80 donors contributed to the campaign to name a portion of the building in honor of Reynolds, including a recent significant contribution by her close friends, Harmon and George Logan of Charlottesville. Campaign co-chairs Pam and Bill Royall and ICA donors Carolyn and John Snow also directed a portion of their gifts be made in Reynolds’ honor, bringing the total gifts and pledges in Reynolds’ name to $3 million.
