ICA Gallery Named After Bev Reynolds

The first-floor gallery in the Markel Center of the Institute for Contemporary Arts at Virginia Commonwealth University will be named in honor of Beverly W. Reynolds.

“It is appropriate and wonderful that one of the most prominent spaces in the ICA be named for Bev Reynolds, one of the most prominent supporters of the arts in our city’s history,” said VCU President Michael Rao.

VCU Stamps Reynolds Name on Upcoming Gallery

With $3 million in donations given on her behalf, a local arts supporter will now lend her name to part of VCU’s new Institute for Contemporary Art. The school announced Tuesday that the first-floor art gallery in the new $35 million building will be named for Beverly Reynolds, founder and director of Reynolds Gallery in the Fan.

Slow Build

Try as hard as you like, Lisa Freiman will not be rushed into naming an opening date for Virginia Commonwealth University’s Institute for Contemporary Art. Though an excavator pierced asphalt at the intersection of Broad and Belvidere streets in Richmond last June, Freiman, the director of the $35 million, 43,000-square-foot institute, is more interested in doing it right than doing it fast.
