A TOUR OF THE P. BUCKLEY MOSS MUSEUM
(May 2008)
Running Time: 60 minutes

The museum opened on May 12, 1989, in Waynesboro, Virginia, to permanently record and illuminate the Moss phenomenon through educational exhibitions, lectures, permanent collections and archival files. Pat Moss' story is told and illustrated over and over in the Museum's main gallery, as visitors are exposed to some of the best examples of her artistic creativity. The tour explores the symbolism behind P. Buckley Moss’ favorite images, the messages she seeks to convey, and the events in her life that inspired her and defined her style.

“You really have to work,” P. Buckley Moss concluded. “You have to work and work and work and work. And in doing the work, that’s where you discover, ‘Oh, this is who I am! Look, this is who I am! I’ve done it here. I’ve done it here and here. This is spontaneous. I didn’t realize it. But this is who I am. This is where my vision is or whatever.’ It’s wonderful because you keep discovering that and you have to be open to discover that all the time.”

The P. Buckley Moss Museum Tour was produced by WVPT Producer Ed Bickel.
