A former professor at Old Dominion University, Dr. Linda McGreevy has a reputation for an engaging lecture style popular with both beginners and seasoned art historians. She displays a knack for deep insight presented in a manner that is both accessible and entertaining.  Virginia MOCA has invited Dr. McGreevy to focus her keen eye on the exhibition, Turn the Page: the First Ten Years of Hi-Fructose.   

In this exhibition, many artists reference art, artists and art movements from the near and distant past. Dr. McGreevy will help us understand what it is we are seeing and why it matters. She will enlighten us on the visual language that connects us all through the ages right through to MOCA’s galleries.
