The Frist Center for the Visual Arts is an art museum in Nashville
.The museum is housed in what used to be the main post office designed by Marr & Holman Architects for the city of Nashville, which had been built in 1933-34 near Union Station, since most mail at that time was moved by train.
The art center consists of approximately 24,000 square feet (2,200 m sq) of gallery space, used to present visual art from local, state and regional artists, as well as major U.S. and international exhibitions.Visitors age 18 and younger are admitted to the Frist Center free of charge.As a non-collecting museum, the Frist Center does not have a permanent collection in the truest sense; rather, the museum focuses on creating exhibitions as well securing travelling exhibitions from around the country and the World
The center provides services such as teacher education, summer arts camps, community outreach programs, and various other programs designed to further arts education.The Martin
ArtQuest Gallery is not just for kids. Everyone is welcome to come in and learn about and make art. It’s not at all unusual to see a grandparent, parent and child all participating in the same engaging activity.
