“This is one of my favorite places in the world! The exhibitions are always wonderful and pique your curiosity- from fashion to sculptures to glass blown artworks to CARS- yes, amazing art deco cars that I still dream about…. there’s something for everyone.”- Terry
“Housed in an old Art Deco Post Office, the building alone is worth the trip if you appreciate amazing architecture. The Frist has no permanent collection, but instead focuses on a fantastic rotation of traveling exhibits. I have seen MANY great shows here and have been introduced to many fantastic artists & designers through the varied exhibits. It doesn’t matter what is showing, GO!!”- Jen
