Affinity days are days or periods when organized groups are able to come to the Frist Center free of charge.
When asked why people do not visit the Frist Center, two answers are most often given:
1. Don’t have time.
2. Don’t have anyone to go with.
Affinity Days are an effort to overcome these barriers.
We work with civic and social organizations, church groups, businesses, employee and alumni groups, to create the opportunity to visit the Frist Center. On these days and evenings, we provide discounted parking (as available in Frist Center lots) and can often schedule a special tour.
We ask that the group provide us with a single contact with whom we can coordinate information and activities. We will coordinate the dates and then provide information on current exhibitions and other available activities.
Members of the “affinity group” must present one coupon per adult to redeem free admission to the Frist Center.

Big Brothers/Big Sisters
