The Frist loves families! On the second Sunday of each month, join us for family tours, multisensory gallery experiences, and a visit to the Martin ArtQuest Gallery.

  • A Choctaw Beadwork Demonstration with Sally Wells and Madison Dean will take place in the Grand Lobby from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. Sally Wells is a founding member of the Native American Indian Association of Tennessee and is a member of the Mississippi Band of Choctaw. Sally received the 2019 Tennessee Governor’s Arts Award for her lifelong effort to preserve Native American art forms. In 2015, Sally and her granddaughter, Madi Dean, participated in the Tennessee Arts Commission’s Apprenticeship Program to ensure the tradition of Choctaw beadwork is passed on to future generations. Now 23 years old, Madi is honored to celebrate the traditions of her community. 
  • A Family Tour begins at 1:45 p.m. at the Ingram Gallery information desk.
  • A Multisensory Exploration Station is available in the Ingram Gallery from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. The Multisensory Exploration Station offers opportunities for visitors of all ages to touch, smell, and listen to materials and objects of varying textures, aromas, and sounds that relate to the featured exhibition.
  • The interactive Martin ArtQuest Gallery is open every Sunday from 1:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. Explore new art-making stations relating to the exhibition Jeffrey Gibson: The Body Electric!
