Become a part of art changing lives.
Each year, hundreds of Frist Center volunteers from across the Nashville area inspire people to look at their world in new ways. Not only is the Frist Center’s volunteer program a great way to support the arts in our community, but it’s the perfect way to meet interesting people just like you.
The Frist Center is extremely proud to have received the first round of the Excellence in Volunteer Engagement (EVE) certification, an initiative developed by the Metropolitan Nashville Mayor's Office to recognize high-quality volunteer management by nonprofits and to help increase the number of volunteers in Davidson County. It is the first such certification effort in the nation.

“I first wanted to become a Frist Center volunteer because I needed volunteer hours for school. I have continued volunteering because I love the environment. I believe that art should be available to everyone and it is important for me to support the Frist Center’s Mission.”
Frist Center Volunteer since 2009
Since before we opened our doors in 2001, volunteers from throughout the Nashville community have been in an important part of helping us to fulfill the Frist Center’s mission and vision.
In a typical year, nearly 400 volunteers provide more than 25,000 hours of service to the Frist Center. Docents lead more than 15,000 visitors on tours, visitor services volunteers welcome over 200,000 visitors into our exhibition galleries, and ArtQuest volunteers assist over 110,000 children and families in the Martin ArtQuest Gallery.
And that’s not all – from promoting membership to assisting with sales in the gift shop, from evaluation to office assistance, volunteers can be found throughout the Frist Center every single day.
