It is with deep regret that we announce the 2020 Frist Gala and Patron Party are postponed.
There have been no known cases of COVID-19 in connection with the Frist Art Museum; however, along with many other businesses and gathering places, we feel that moving these events to a later date is the correct course of action. On behalf of the Frist and 2020 Frist Gala co-chairs, we would like to thank you for your continued support of the museum’s mission and vision. We will announce the new dates as soon as possible.

About the Frist Gala

The Frist Gala and its Patron Party are among the premier social events in Nashville. As the primary fundraiser for the Frist Art Museum, the Frist Gala nets more than $600,000 each year to support the museum’s education and community engagement programs. 

The 2020 Gala will take its thematic inspiration from the Frist Art Museum’s presentation of J.M.W. Turner: Quest for the Sublime, organized in cooperation with Tate, London.
