April 2009 issue
Our April issue celebrates spring by showcasing the handiwork of Virginia's artisan jewelers in a photo shoot unlike any we've done before. We also venture inside Virginia Commonwealth's top-rated arts school, and we travel to Newport News to examine one of the biggest, most complex construction projects ever—the supercarrier christened George H.W. Bush. Following a blog trail took us to Winchester's One Block West restaurant, and in this issue's food department, three chefs from around the state stepped up to a challenge we presented them. Also inside: Virginius Dabney and Douglas Southall Freeman, two of the greatest newspaper editors of all time; a visit to Bristol; blowzy peonies and more.
