The Fralin Museum of Art at the University of Virginia encourages the spirit of curiosity and promotes diversity of thought through the study, care, and celebration of art.

About the Fralin

Fralin for Families...

Bring the children in your life early and often! Research shows that early exposure to the arts supports children’s ability to articulate what they see and experience in a work of art, and leads to appreciation and enjoyment of the arts in adulthood.
