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.
