The William King Museum of Art is a non-profit regional art museum and arts education center housed in a historic 1913 former school. Showcasing world fine art, contemporary regional art and cultural heritage, it is the only facility of its kind and Virginia's only nationally accredited museum west of Roanoke. An average of 9 exhibitions are mounted each year. Programming includes artist talks, lectures, workshops, and other special events. Two additional galleries include the Student Gallery, which displays works from area schools and colleges, and the Panoramic Gallery that features self-curated shows by local artists. These two galleries offer up to 24 additional exhibits a year. An extensive arts education program serves school and public audiences both within and outside of the facility. The Museum also features artist studios, reference library, research archives, and an outdoor sculpture garden.
