They grow up so fast! Holy crap guys, can you believe that it’s the Frist Center’s 10th birthday already? I know I can’t, but when they opened I was 11 years old and living in Ohio, so I sort of missed out on most of its youth. But still, 10 years is quite the wonderful achievement and Nashville’s biggest (and really, only) art museum is celebrating by having a party for all of its friends. That’s right, this Friday and Saturday you’re all invited to experience the Frist Center for free!
Today it’s just a regular museum day, but if you can only head over after you get off work you might want to consider hanging in the lobby for a bit and listening to the bluegrassy sounds of Belmont’s Bluegrass Ensemble.
Saturday is a little more packed with events and will, presumably, be a little more packed with people. There will be different artsy-crafty stations all over the museum; perfect for kids or the lovable artistic soul in you.
But what’s there to see at the Frist? Right now you can see:
- Vishnu: Hinduism’s Blue-Skinned Savior
- William Eggleston: Anointing the Overlooked
- Simen Johan: Until the Kingdom Comes
- Hindu Home Shrines: Creating Space for Personal Contemplations
- Young Tennessee Artists: 2010 Statewide Advanced Placement Studio Art
- Boaz Vaadia Sculpture
I guess that this awesome free admission thing means we’re going to have to go easy on you for not getting a birthday cake, eh Frist Center?
