The Little Museum of Art at The Fralin is paying homage to summer camp! 

From macaroni sculptures to macrame wall hangings, we are elevating these childhood favorites to mini-museum masterpieces! 

Join us for the exhibition opening reception outside on our plaza*. Inspired by the theme of the exhibition, we’ll have an artmaking area to make and take a craft. Kona Ice will be here to keep us cool with their summer treats.

Exhibition will remain on view through August 5. 

The Fralin is open Fridays until 8 pm! Stop by to enjoy the exhibitions inside the museum as well.

*In the event of rain, the festivities will move indoors.
