Happy MLK Day everyone! Some of you probably have the day off, especially if you are a student, a federal worker, or work at a place that takes today off. That’s probably a lot of you. But what should you do? How can you keep yourself entertained and fill your mind with knowledge and beauty on your day off?
Easy, go to the Frist. It’s free today!
There are two pretty cool exhibits there right now. I’m a huge fan of the works in A Divine Light: Northern Renaissance Paintings from the Bob Jones University Museum & Gallery. It contains 28 great Baroque works and “designed as intimate encounter with the devotional art of the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries and explores the ways in which Northern Renaissance artists expressed the central mysteries of the Christian faith through setting, pose, gesture, and the objects of everyday life.”
Tracy Snelling’s “Woman on the Run” is the other exhibit at the Frist right now, and it’s pretty cool. It contains “sculptures of rundown buildings on the outskirts of town show a keen sensitivity to the psychological tensions and hidden narratives of ordinary life.”
The Frist Center will be open today from 10am-5:30pm. Enjoy.
