Frist Art Museum's Art Deco explosion
The Frist Art Museum is launching a new exhibition celebrating the unmistakable Art Deco style of the 1920s and 1930s.
- Open Friday, the exhibition includes about 140 pieces, from paintings and sculptures to vacuums and a 1930 Ford Model A.
Getting meta: If you're unfamiliar with Art Deco, look no further than the Frist lobby for a shimmering example.
Local connection: The exhibition includes work from multiple figures associated with the Harlem Renaissance, including painter Aaron Douglas, who came to Nashville in 1930 to paint murals for Fisk University. He later returned and established the university's art department.
The details: The exhibition runs through Jan. 2. You can buy tickets online.
- The exhibition curator will host a free Zoom overview tonight at 6:30pm.
