Special Rates and Activities for Seniors on the third Monday of each month
The Frist Center presents Senior Mondays, a series of events for those who admit their “senior” status. On these days, gallery admission is half price for seniors and a special senior parking flat rate fee of $3.00 in the Frist Center lots is offered, based on availability. Seniors receive a 15 percent discount on purchases made in the gift shop and on refreshments purchased in the Frist Center Café during the event.
Snappy Pappy plays music of the 40s, 50s, and 60s from 12:30-1:30 p.m. LIVE in the lobby.
A docent-guided tour of one of the current exhibitions is offered at 1:30 p.m.
Programming on Senior Mondays also includes tours and in-gallery activities, all included with discounted admission.
A group from Signature Healthcare recently visited the Frist on a Senior Monday and had this to say:
This was a great opportunity for the crew to tie in our Cultural Diversity highlight for the month, Italy. Our staff and residents from Signature Healthcare of Clarksville and Madison enjoyed an educational trip to the Frist Center to take in the sights and absorb the facts. Our crew of 30 were guided through the exhibit and were shown Italian Fashion Styles that dated back to 1945. We learned about the different designers including Valentino, Gucci, Dolce and Gabana, Simonetta, etc. Our tour guides were able to relate to the different fashions because they had lived in Italy and were able to give personal stories related to wearing some of the fashions. We also learned about the celebrities and political figures that had worn the styles. Our group was also able to enjoy some of the musical sounds from "Snappy Pappy" who played music from the 40s, 50s, and 60s!
We sure did enjoy a fun loaded trip and some of our folks enjoyed a trip through the gift shop, where they were able to get a momento of the event! What a great day and I want to thank Emily at the Frist Center for being such a gracious and patient hostess to our crowd. Thanks to everyone who participated!
