LYNCHBURG, Va.—Randolph-Macon Woman's College's Maier Museum of Art is offering Valentine's Day programming for young and old alike this Valentine's Day weekend.

On Friday, February 13th at 6:00 P.M, art historian Kathleen Placidi will present "The Love Lives of Artists (Or, what the gallery labels won't tell you!)," a special adult program to help adults celebrate Valentine's Day eve. Placidi's presentation will be followed by hors d'oeuvres. Admission for this event is $15 per person (R-MWC student guests, faculty, staff, and Maier members and volunteers receive a 15% discount). The event is free for R-MWC students.

On Saturday, February 14th at 1:00 P.M., the Museum will turn its attention to the younger crowd with a special children's Valentine's Day program, "Looking for Red in All the Right Places." The event includes a gallery treasure hunt, storytelling, valentine and bracelet making, and sweetheart cookies as children ages five to twelve discover how artists use the color red to express themselves. All are welcome to attend this event. Admission fees are $10 per family, regardless of size, and R-MWC faculty, staff, Maier members, and volunteers receive a 15% discount.

For more information on these, or any other programs at the Maier, call Martha Johnson, curator of education at 434-947-8136, or visit the museum online.
