The Frist Center for the Visual Arts hosts a range of exceptionally diverse exhibitions. Their vision is to inspire people through art to look at their world in new ways and the mission of the Frist Center is to present and originate high quality exhibitions with related educational programs and community outreach activities.
The Frist Center offers ever-changing exhibitions from around the world, family activities, films, lectures and tours, music, and special art performances. The programs offered by the Frist Center are hugely abundant. You will find something to interest everyone.
The Frist Center opened in April 2001, and since that time has hosted a spectacular array of art from the region, the country, and around the world.
Unlike any traditional museum you’ve ever visited, the Frist Center for the Visual Arts has become a magnet for Nashville’s rapidly expanding visual arts scene. With an exhibitions schedule that has new art flowing through the magnificent Art Deco building every 6 to 8 weeks, there is always something new and exciting to see in the spacious galleries.
While at the Frist Center, be sure to stop by the Frist Center’s beautiful gift shop. There, you’ll find a fabulous array of art prints, books, educational materials, art supplies, clothing, blown glass, pottery, and magnificent jewelry made by local and regional artisans.
The popular Frist Center Cafe features a variety of delicious homemade soups, luscious desserts, salads, and sandwiches, making the Cafe a popluar gathering place for brunch, lunch, afternoon snacks, and dinner on Thursday and Friday evenings.
