Join the Fralin

Make The Fralin your museum!

Your tax-deductible membership provides crucial support for the Museum's programs, exhibitions, and acquisitions. Memberships also secure The Fralin's place at the center of the arts at U.Va. and in Charlottesville. Our renovated space comes with a renewed sense of purpose: to bring the very best exhibitions and programming to our community. Your support can help us achieve that goal!

Members are the first to know about lectures and programs. Join your fellow art lovers at exclusive exhibition previews and on members' trips. Bring your family to the Museum for hands-on learning activities. Take part in community-wide events and exciting social gatherings.
