Academy Center of the Arts launches new virtual series Academy at Home

LYNCHBURG, Va. – Lynchburg’s theater may be dark, you can enjoy the arts without being inside the theater.

The Academy Center of the Arts has launched a series called, Academy at Home.

From your couch, you can watch livestreamed performances with local artists, educational videos and tour a virtual gallery with sculpture and paintings.

Theater officials said closing for the coronavirus has allowed them to become creative for people at home.

“This is a really difficult time to be an artist and this gives us an opportunity to serve our local artist in a really direct way right now too,” said executive director Geoff Kershner.

Later this month a local blues grass band will be performing at the theater.
