What’s Happening at The Frist Art Museum


This is a special Urbaanite guide for all of our art and culture lovers out there. We will keep you updated on the regular with all of the exhibits you can experience from our friends at the Frist.

The Frist Art Museum currently has two expansive exhibits for guests to experience, shared with Nashville from Italy and Southern California.

Light, Space, Surface

June 3rd – September 4th 2022

Light Space Surface exhibition includes a modern display of paintings, sculptures, and installations, and is shared with the Frist Art Museum and the Nashville Community, from the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. This exhibit truly highlights Southern California style and culture with the use of glossy surfaces and intense light. The Frist also encourages guests to bring their personal headphones to enjoy the immersive audio tour that was created in collaboration with the Nashville Ambient Ensemble. A full feature with additional details was completed by Urbaanite earlier this summer, and can be found here.


Knights in Armor

July 1st – October 10th 2022

Knights in Armor exhibition is a full display of Renaissance armor shared with the Frist Art Museum and Nashville Community, from the collection of Museo Stibbert in Florence, Italy. This engaging exhibit can be viewed from July through October 10th 2022. Guests can enjoy viewing the detailed suits of armor, special helmets, and a wide variety of weapons. Each part of the display will share a piece of history, education on functional use, and showcase the artistic details integrated into the protective battle gear of European knights of the Middle Ages. Knights in Armor is also set up to be very family friendly– giving the opportunity to follow the narrative of a fictional young knight, interactive Knight themed activities in the Martin ArtQuest Gallery, and even online at home fun too.
