The Little Museum of Art

Launched in the summer of 2021, The Fralin’s Little Museum of Art was inspired by the Little Free Library movement and other miniature art galleries that emerged during the pandemic, along with a desire to engage with local and student artists. The six galleries in this miniature museum showcase tiny works on a rotating basis. 

At the close of each exhibition, the artwork will be moved to The Free Little Museum Store, where the public can take a piece or swap with one of their own, sharing art throughout the community. The Little Museum of Art and The Little Museum Store are located outside on the Cornell Plaza and are on view 24 hours a day.

The Little Museum closes for the winter and reopens in the spring. 



May Flowers opens May 27. We are seeking floral and botanical art -- realistic, impressionist, abstract -- however you interpret the blooms of spring. Artwork can be 2-D or 3-D and may not exceed 6 inches in either direction. Gallery walls are 12" x 12" x 14". Deadline to apply is Friday, May 20. Art must be dropped off by May 24. Apply here.
