Regions Free Day at the Frist

Tomorrow Regions is presenting a free day at the Frist Center. Yay!

You get to see all kinds of art for free. There are two exhibits up right now: American Art from The Phillips Collection and Fairy Tales, Monsters, and Genetic Imagination

American Art from The Phillips Collection features just a sampling of the museum’s excellent collection, including works by George Inness, Winslow Homer, Edward Hicks, Edward Hopper, Maurice Prendergast, John Sloan, Arthur Dove (his painting Morning Sun is pictured), Georgia O’Keeffe, John Marin, Stuart Davis, Milton Avery, Jacob Lawrence, Adolph Gottlieb, Philip Guston, Richard Diebenkorn, Robert Motherwell, and many others.

Fairy Tales, Monsters, and Genetic Imagination is a complete 180 from The Phillips Collection. Its contains “works by contemporary artists who invent humanlike, animal, or hybrid creatures to symbolize life’s mysteries, desires, and fears.” Think Aesop’s Fables meets genetic experimentation. Weird. Your kids will either love it or get nightmares from it.

The Frist Center is free all day, 10am-5:30pm, but I suggest getting there at 10am. Not just to beat the crowds, but to check out the Artist’s Panel: Fables for our Times event that will feature four artists who are being showcased in Fairy Tales, Monsters, and Genetic Imagination.
