With images and object records for over 1,200 objects, the Online Collection is a valuable resource for browsing, study, research, and teaching. The collection offers special features such as quick and advanced searches, zoomable images, collection-specific and exhibition image portfolios, personalized community portfolios, and social media options for e-mail, MySpace, Facebook, and Twitter. The Online Collection is regularly updated as new records, images, and research are added.
Teaching & study spaces
The Museum's Object Study Gallery, Print Study Gallery, and Painting Storage offer visitors increased access to the Museum's collection. The Object Study Gallery and the Print Study Gallery are open to the public during our regular hours and display highlights from the permanent collection. Faculty members are invited to reserve any of these spaces for their course. Museum staff members are available to assist with selections of objects that will complement nearly any course syllabus.

The Fralin Museum of Art is pleased to present interactive 3-D visualizations of ceramics and sculpture collection highlights from the Ancient Mediterranean, South Asia, Africa, and Ancient Americas. Each object in this catalog can be rotated and enlarged using simple touch gestures. A detailed description written by Museum curators accompanies each piece and chronicles its history and cultural context.
We are very excited about this step in distance learning and look forward to hearing your feedback.
