To best showcase the growing collection, bring innovative exhibitions to the community, and provide the educational programs core to the mission of The Fralin, the University's Board of Visitors has approved the planning for a 20,000 square foot, five-level addition to the west-side of the current Museum building. This new wing will increase exhibition space by 64% and nearly double the useable programming space, including a dedicated Education Resource Room, two new signature galleries, and a new meeting space for seminars and classes.
An expanded museum will anchor Arts Grounds, both in its physical presence and through its interdisciplinary programming. The Fralin will serve as the convener for the arts at the University of Virginia and for the community it serves.
