To mark the fiftieth anniversary of the current state constitution, the Library of Virginia is pleased to offer Virginia’s Constitutions, a traveling exhibition.
State constitutions are one of the most essential parts of the social contract. They articulate a way of life and embody fundamentally important ideas about the relationships between people and their government. State constitutions provide additional protections and rights not named in the federal constitution, and can be amended more often than the federal one. Thomas Jefferson believed that state constitutions should be revised at regular intervals.
For more information on this exhibition or bringing it to your area, please contact Barbara C. Batson, exhibitions coordinator, at email@example.com or 804.692.3518. Here is the Prospectus and FAQ for Virginia’s Constitutions.
Please note: Schedule subject to change as a result of closures due to Covid-19 response.
