Frist Center for the Visual Arts

An exciting hub of Nashville’s artistic and cultural scene, the Frist Center is a non-collecting institution featuring ever-changing exhibitions from local, regional, national, and international collections.

Located in downtown Nashville’s architecturally and historically significant former post office building, the Center also offers a wide variety of programming, including lectures, concerts, films, and family activities; a gift shop; a café with a kid-friendly menu; and the award-winning Martin ArtQuest interactive gallery, where you can learn about art and create your own masterpieces.

Open seven days a week, there is something for everyone at the Frist. No matter how often you visit, you never have the same experience twice. Admission for youth 18 and under is always free.
