From the Beginning: The Maier Museum of Art at Randolph College (2021).
Directed by Tom Sykes, 41 mins.
From the Beginning: The Maier Museum of Art at Randolph College tells the remarkable story of how a small women’s college in Virginia – Randolph-Macon Woman’s College – built an innovative and distinguished collection of American art. Always small, but ambitious, and ahead of its time, the College nurtured a community of faculty and students committed to the arts and encouraged their scholarly, risk-taking pursuits. As a result, the Collection features excellent works illustrating the evolution of American art from the early 19th century to today. Through interviews, archival photographs, and current footage, filmmaker Tom Sykes reveals how the arts remain at the center of Randolph College’s liberal arts education.
Followed by Q&A with filmmaker Tom Sykes.
