The Little Museum of Art

08/27/2021 to 09/23/2021

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.

Upcoming exhibition schedule:

August 27 – September 23

September 24 – October 22

October 29 – November 28

The Little Museum will close for the winter and reopen in the spring of 2022.
