Lynchburg’s Academy Center of the Arts set to reopen for classes, camps


LYNCHBURG, Va. (WFXR) – The Academy Center of the Arts in downtown Lynchburg is preparing to reopen their educational venues for on-site classes and camps beginning later this month.

“The Academy Center of the Arts has always put our patrons, our supporters and our community members first. That’s why, when COVID-19 began to spread throughout the region, we closed our doors ahead of official governing regulations, and why we continue to put tremendous thought into when and how we will reopen those doors to the public in the future.

Following Governor Northam’s Executive Order No. 65, we are officially releasing our plans to reopen our educational gallery venues, as well as our guidelines for reopening our performance venues in the future.”

Statement on Academy Center of the Arts website

Beginning the final week of June, camps and on-site classes at the center will begin.

Their plans to return to their First Friday Gallery Exhibition will begin on July 3.

The performance venues will remain closed until additional restrictions are eased.
