In collaboration with long-standing museum supporters and community members, we updated our membership program to better reflect our values and meet the needs of our audiences.  

The pandemic gave us a unique opportunity to reexamine our membership program and make it better suited to the needs of our members and greater community. Over the past two years, we have designed a more streamlined program that now reflects The Fralin’s mission, vision, and values, in addition to addressing the results of our 5-year strategic plan. The reimagined program also provides a range of compelling benefits to members at all levels. Most importantly, the new membership program will generate key philanthropic support that will help sustain the museum’s operations and programming for years to come.  



Your generosity to The Fralin through membership ensures that our museum’s admission, exhibitions, and programs will continue to be free and accessible to all.  

The Fralin is both your art museum in greater central Virginia, and the academic art museum of The University of Virginia. The museum is a space of learning for people of all ages. Become a member of The Fralin today and enjoy new opportunities for increased intellectual engagement and collective art experiences with others. Membership levels and benefits are outlined below.

Admission to the museum galleries is free to all during standard operating hours (with special event exceptions).
