Continued exposure to art and music can slow the decline of persons with Alzheimer's disease and other memory disorders. Eyes on Art is an innovative program designed in partnership with the Arts Fusion Program of the Central and Western Virginia Chapter of the Alzheimer's Association, to engage people with Alzheimer's in meaningful discussions about art.
Now in it’s 30th year, Writer’s Eye, started by The Fralin’s docents in 1986, is an annual literary competition that challenges writers of all ages.
The Fralin Museum of Art is the proud host of the 2017 Virginia Docent Exchange, April 1-2, 2017. This year’s theme, “Whose Museum Is It?” will explore the ways in which museums welcome, represent, include, and, integrate the voices of our diverse museum audiences. Join us Saturday, April 1st, for dinner in the newly-renovated Rotunda and hear our keynote speaker, museum educator Dr. Danielle Rice.
