This month, PAAL will exhibit a selection from its Permanent Collection. Many of the works on display were acquired through purchase prizes at PAAL's long-running Poplar Lawn Art Festival, in its heyday one of the outstanding art festivals on the East Coast. The festival took place at one end of Garden Week in Virginia, and the Prince George Heritage Fair took place at the other end. Sometimes the Petersburg Symphony Orchestra performed in the park during the weekend. It cries out for revival.
