Lecture Series

We co-sponsor the Centuries of Art @ Your Library lecture series!

Three speakers are scheduled for the Winter 2018 Centuries of Art @ Your Library season. These lectures are made possible by The Williamsburg Contemporary Art Center in partnership with the Williamsburg Regional Library and guest speakers from the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts. They are free and open to the public. Our lectures begin at 7:30 pm and usually end before 9:00 pm including time for Q&A.

If you have questions about a particular lecture, please call the library at (757)-259-4070.
