Jumpin’ again?

by | Jan 7, 2010 | POLITICS

The Virginia Museum of Fine Arts Blog has announced that their live music event, Jumpin!, will be re-starting after a six year hiatus (hiatus caused by their current expansion) when the museum formally opens their new McGlothlin wing, the main part of the expansion. Jumpin! stopped before RVA Magazine was founded, so we’re looking forward to covering this event that dates back to nineteen eight four! From their blog:

After 21 years of interesting esoteric roots music, Jumpin’ has been on hiatus since August 2004 due to our construction. The museum’s grand opening will be on May 1, 2010. Following that, Jumpin’ will find its way into our new Robins Sculpture Garden in June with acts that will totally reaffirm all the good press from past years. This first post-construction year will be a shortened season, or a “taste of things to come,” due to the fact that we will resume moving and arranging art into the garden in July.
