Admire & Create Fine Art at the Frist
Today, 10:00a - 5:30p
Reignite the artsy flame in you—whether you're an art history buff or simply a curious onlooker, the Frist Center is sure to amaze all audiences and teach you something new.
The Frist Center is truly an outstanding piece in and of itself, but this museum attracts masterworks from all countries and eras while also being the eye of Nashville's art scene. What used to be an art deco post office is now the home of highly curated, temporary exhibitions that feature anything from Ancient Egypt to contemporary pop art. They've brought in a few known greats—like O'Keefe, Rockwell and Kandinksy just to name a few—but also speak to the community by hosting local artists installations and competitions. Make sure to take time to admire the gorgeous architecture and don't miss the outdoor sculptures too—though a giant bundle of thorny roses by the building's facade is kinda hard to miss!
If attention spans are running low, head to the second floor for a hands-on space—the "kids section" is actually open to all ages (let's face it, adults really reap the benefits of this one) and offers all the tools to learn basic calligraphy, print making and more.
Pro Tip: If you're a Bank of America cardholder you get in fo' free on the first Saturday of the month!
