About the Frist Gala

The Frist Gala and its Patron Party are among the premier social events in Nashville. As the primary fundraiser for the Frist Art Museum, the Frist Gala nets more than $600,000 each year to support the museum’s education and outreach programs. Attendees include corporate and civic leaders from across Middle Tennessee. The 2018 Gala will take its thematic inspiration from the Frist Art Museum’s presentation of Rome: City and Empire, a collaboration between the British Museum and the Frist Art Museum.
