Prompted by our vision of inspiring people through art to look at their world in new ways, the Frist Art Museum invited teens to submit their artwork for this fifth edition of Teens Take the Frist! The resulting selection features artworks highlighting nostalgia as a theme in a variety of mediums created by emerging Middle Tennessee artists.

We celebrated the opening of the exhibition with a fun reception with art-making activities, music, and spoken word.

The exhibition, along with other Frist initiatives like Teen ARTlabs and the Teen Arts Action Group, is intended to give individuals ages 13–19 a safe space to express themselves and participate in activities with peers and art professionals.

Our teen programs receive funding from the Robert & Anne Zelle Fund for Fine and Performing Arts of The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee.

Supported in part by

Frist Foundation, Metro Arts, Tennessee Arts Commission, and National Endowment for the Arts logos
