About The Fralin


Our dynamic Andy Warhol: Icons exhibition has attracted an engaged audience of art lovers to the Museum. Please join us on August 27th or September 13th for our final public Gallery Talks.

The exhibition will also be the focus of a One-Day UVA program entitled Warhol and Portraiture on August 22nd, offering an in-depth learning experience that is designed to educate, provoke thought and encourage dialogue among its audience. We invite all to experience this lively exhibition before September 18th.

The Fralin next welcomes an exhibition organized by the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts entitled THE GREAT WAR: Printmakers of World War I, featuring American and British printmakers from the early twentieth century, including Childe Hassam and James McBey. Renowned artist Dorothea Rockburne’s A Gift of Knowing: The Art of Dorothea Rockburne will open on September 30th in our J. Sanford Miller Family Gallery. The exhibition of Rockburne’s recent paintings reflects her training in mathematics and science, as well as her interest in astronomy. Ms. Rockburne will be on Grounds to speak about her work on October 6th and we hope that you will seize this rare opportunity to hear from a living artist of her caliber.

This year also marks two important milestones in our Museum’s history at the University of Virginia. We celebrate the 30th anniversary of The Fralin Museum of Art’s Student Docent program—one of the oldest university student docent programs in the country—and Writer’s Eye, our flagship poetry and prose competition inspired by art on view in the Museum.

Thank you for your role in helping us launch exhibitions and educational programs that engage visitors of all ages with great art. We could not accomplish this without you—our members, donors, partners and volunteers—who loyally support our work each year. We look forward to seeing you in our galleries soon!
