We love the Frist Center. Really, we do. There’s never a shortage of interesting things happening there, and a lot of them happen to be free. Unfortunately, the limitations on the freebies often mean that we can’t fit them into our schedules, so we were excited to learn that the Frist Center will be free all day tomorrow in honor of the Tennessean’s Ms. Cheap. In addition to free admission (10am-9pm), Ms. Cheap will be making an appearance in the auditorium from 11am-1pm to meet and talk with guests, a “Ms. Cheap lunch special” will be $5 and there will be a Ms. Cheap discount in the gift shop (25%) and on membership ($5 off). And no Nashville event would be complete without free music (6pm-8pm).
The new exhibit at the Frist, Color as Field: American Painting, 1950-75, is a collection of gigantic paintings that immerse the viewer in color fields, and is the first major exhibition to explore the concept and technique of color field painting. We can take or leave some of the exhibits that cycle through the Frist, but this one is so different and unique that it’s been on our must-see list.
Can’t make it tomorrow? Don’t sweat it. Family Day is coming up on August 17, with free admission from 1pm-5:30pm, and there’s a free Jazz On The Move concert this Sunday at 3pm that also includes free admission to the galleries. Don’t forget Free College Nights!
