The Fayette Art Museum is a museum in Fayette, Alabama. It is focused mostly on works made by local artists, majority of which are from the area, while others are from neighboring locales.

The Fayette Art Museum started in 1969 when a local artist, Lois Wilson, gave the city of Fayette 110 pieces of art works. This served as the first collection for the museum, which continued to grow through the years. Currently, they have more than 4000 pieces in the permanent collection which are made by artists like the Fayette native, Jimmy Lee Sudduth, Sibyl Gibson, Rev. Benjamin F. Perkins, Wanda Teel, Jessi LaVon, and Fred Webster.

The Fayette Art Museum is housed in the 1930 grammar school building that was renovated in 1982 and transformed into the Fayette Civic Center and Art Museum. It is open on weekdays, from 9 am to 4 pm.
