On February 6th, Virginia Arcadia: The Natural Bridge in American Art opens at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts in Richmond, exploring the artistic heritage of this iconic natural wonder.

Featured artists include Frederic Church, David Johnson, Edward Hicks, and many others who depicted Virginia’s Natural Bridge, one of the most popular sites in 19th-century American landscape painting that, according to VMFA, was probably only surpassed by Niagara Falls.

Remember, this is an indoor activity and face covering is required. The VMFA uses a time card system to ensure removal.

The rock formation is more than 400 million years old and was gradually formed when the waters of Cedar Creek caused erosion, resulting in a large arch.

In 1774 Thomas Jefferson bought the property from King George III. As part of 150 hectares, and his family owned it seven years after his death.

If you’re feeling inspired to create your own rendition of the bridge after watching the show, Natural Bridge State Park is great for visitors of all ages. The natural wonder is just under three hours away. Once there, it is easy to reach via the Cedar Creek Trail, which leads under the 21 meter high limestone arch. There is more to discover there, as well as activities for children and self-guided nature tours.
