ROANOKE, Va. (WDBJ) - A new exhibit at the Taubman Museum of Art is bringing European masterworks to western Virginia.

Opening later this month, ‘Titian to Monet: European Paintings from Joslyn Art Museum’ includes paintings by some of the most famous names in art history.

It includes 52 paintings on loan from the Omaha, Nebraska museum and spans almost 500 years. The artists include Titian, Monet, Rembrandt and Renoir.

Cindy Petersen is Executive Director of the Taubman Museum of Art.

“It’s the first time that the Joslyn Art Museum was travelling these works to two institutions - ours the only one on the east coast, and another - as they renovate their building,” Petersen told WDBJ7 in an interview. “So, a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see these masterworks.”

The exhibit also includes a special immersive experience, in partnership with Virginia Tech and Roanoke College, that will use virtual reality and original music to highlight six of the paintings.

Tickets are available for an Opening Celebration Saturday, Oct. 8. The museum will hold a Member Preview Day Sunday, Oct. 9.

The exhibit will be on view from Oct. 14 through Jan. 8.
