Welcome to the new FristArtMuseum.org

We are excited to launch our new website! The design of the new site is spare and clean, but it’s filled with information about our exhibitions, related resources, events, member benefits, family activities, educator resources, and much more. This launch is just the beginning. We are already planning refinements and enhancements and are very excited about the possibilities.

Watch this video for a quick look at the new FristArtMuseum.org. We hope to see you soon. . . online and in person!
