Paris 1900: City of Entertainment is coming to the Frist Art Museum this fall!

On October 12, the Frist Art Museum opens Paris 1900: City of Entertainment, organized by the Paris Musées. At the beginning of the twentieth century, Paris was seen throughout the world as a sparkling city of luxury with a sophisticated way of life. There are more than 250 works in this exhibition, including paintings, decorative art, costumes, posters, photographs, fashion accessories, and sculptures. Visitors will be immersed in the creative and vivacious atmosphere of Paris.
