   The Fayetteville Museum of Art was founded in 1971. Originally housed in downtown Fayetteville's historic Market House, the Museum moved in 1978 to its present facility that was the first building in the State of North Carolina designed and built as an Art Museum. In addition to the modern facility that includes two (2) galleries, classrooms, studio space, an Art Reference & Slide Lending Library, and a Museum Store, the Museum's 5.8 acre grounds and pond give the Fayetteville community a place to gather for relaxation. The park-like setting is an oasis in the midst of a heavily trafficked area; it is also utilized for large scale sculpture displays, art festivals and public concerts.


   Membership is available at a variety of levels. Privileges of membership include: Invitation to Private Premiere Party prior to opening of each exhibition; Newsletter announcing special events prior to notification of general public; Reduced rates for classes and special events; and a 10% discount at the Museum Store.
