The Chrysler Museum of Art is one of America’s most distinguished mid-sized art museums, with a nationally recognized collection of more than 30,000 objects, including one of the great glass collections in America. The core of the Chrysler’s collection comes from Walter P. Chrysler, Jr., an avid art collector who donated thousands of objects from his private collection to the Museum. The Museum, expanded in 2014 to add additional gallery spaces and amenities for visitors, now has growing collections in many areas and mounts an ambitious schedule of visiting exhibitions and educational programs each season. The Chrysler has also been recognized nationally for its unique commitment to hospitality with its innovative gallery host program. The Chrysler Museum of Art is located in Norfolk Virginia, an important 400 year old port city that is also home to the largest naval base in the world and many historic sites dating back to the birth of our nation.
The Chrysler is excited to welcome all AAAM participants to a totally radical opening reception. All of the Museum’s galleries will be open for this 1980’s themed reception featuring great food, music, and local musician BJ Griffin.
