Museum photo

Join Summit participants for a local reception at The Taubman Museum of Art in the heart of downtown Roanoke. The new 81,000 square foot Taubman Museum of Art proves an arresting landmark for visitors, and, as Roanoke's most contemporary structure, provides an analog for the city's evolution from industrial and manufacturing town to technology-driven city. Enjoy drinks, hors d'oevres, and live music before heading downtown for dinner and shopping. The Taubman is easily accessible through the pedestrian walkway that connects the Hotel Roanoke to the museum and downtown.
