CVA presents Beautifully Broken Virginia

Central Virginia Arts will present a lecture,  “Beautifully Broken Virginia” by John Plashal, this Sunday, at 3 p.m. in the Atkinson Museum at Hampden-Sydney College. Come experience a unique photographic journey through the beautifully decaying rural places within our state with which so many Virginians have become fascinated. Photographer John Plashal has commemorated these abandoned gems by capturing their beauty and delivering them to you in a presentation full of powerful imagery and emotional stories.

Come experience the “unseen” side of Virginia, with all the houses, churches, schools, asylums, diners and secret societies that have been “frozen in time” and now documented and photographed. Complemented with exploration tips and photography advice, this talk is sure to satisfy your curiosities and captivate your imagination. “Appreciate them now……for soon they will be gone……but still they stand……beautiful……but broken.” John Plashal is a Richmond-based author, photographer and speaker. He earned a B.B.A. from James Madison University and an M.B.A. from Virginia Commonwealth University. The lecture is free and open to the public.
