Join the Art Deco Society today to preserve the Frist Art Museum’s building!

Since its opening in 2001, the Frist Art Museum has gained an international reputation not only as an important venue for looking at and learning about art, but also as the site of an architectural landmark. As the Nashville skyline rapidly changes, the Frist Art Museum’s historic art deco building—a former federal post office—serves as a symbol both of the city’s rich history and its bright future. 

Art Deco Society members help support the care of this treasure. Patrons, Friends, and Supporters are recognized on-site at the Frist Art Museum as well as on this page. Gifts to the Art Deco Society may be fully tax-deductible. Feel free to contact the Development office at 615.744.3341 or email with any questions.

We gratefully acknowledge the generosity of our current Art Deco Society members.
