Tobacco Project: Richmond

Currently showing at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts in Richmond is an exhibition by Xu Bing called Tobacco Project. It explores the artist's fascination with the tobacco plant, as well as people's relationship with the plant over time. This exhibition is free and ends December 4th, so don't miss out on such an interesting look at Virginia's first major cash crop.

Strange's also participated in this exhibit by providing tobacco plants grown in our greenhouse, seen above.
