Barry Art Museum at Old Dominion University Opens to the Public

On November 16, 2018, the Barry Art Museum opened to the public on the Old Dominion University campus in Norfolk, VA. The museum was made possible by a $37 million  gift from Richard and Carolyn Barry.

At the opening ceremony, President John R. Broderick remarked that the Barry Art Museum and the preexisting art and theater buildings on campus reinforces “the ‘Arts in the Village’ concept” at the University.  The cluster of buildings, remarked Broderick, has “sent the message loud and clear to potential students and the surrounding community that Old Dominion University is committed in every way to supporting and celebrating the arts.” (GlobeNewswire)
