Since 2000, the Frist Center has partnered with local organizations to provide art educational programs to Nashville-area communities. This partnership begins by offering the Art Trunk Program to groups of all ages throughout Davidson County and features collaborations with trusted community institutions serving pre-school and after-school youth, English as a second language and adult basic education learners, families, and senior citizen groups.

As the outreach partnership develops, it is designed to enable our community partners to become ambassadors of the Frist Center. Ambassadors are entrusted to share the common goal of facilitating other unique programs that give community members the ability to see their world in inspiring ways through art. All partners are able to apply for a transportation subsidy to make it possible for them to visit the Frist Center and experience its historical building, exhibitions, and the many programs offered.

See our Annual Outreach Reports to learn more about the Frist Center’s education-based community engagement efforts.
