Art with a Soul: an Exhibit and Reception featuring Danny Doughty

The Frank Batten School of Leadership and Public Policy is pleased to invite you to an exhibition and reception featuring internationally acclaimed folk artist Danny Doughty and his paintings. Doughty uses his art to share the unique stories of the strong women who influenced his youth through their personal example and unconditional love. “[My work] is about oppressed people in an oppressed place. They had a sense of community: where your word was your report card in life, not your checking account. I grew up dirt poor. My work shows the grit and glory of this kind of life.”

The event is open to the public but please RSVP in advance to erin.tor@virginia.edu. Catering will be provided by Harvest Moon.
