Join the Art Deco Society

Join the Art Deco Society today to preserve the Frist Center’s building!

Since its opening in 2001, the Frist Center has gained an international reputation not only as an important venue for looking at and learning about art, but also as the site of an architectural landmark. As the Nashville skyline rapidly changes, the Frist Center’s historic art deco building—a former federal post office—serves as a symbol both of the city’s rich history and its bright future. 

Art Deco Society members help support the on-going care of this treasure. Patrons, Friends, and Supporters are recognized on-site at the Frist Center as well as on this page. All gifts to the Art Deco Society are fully tax-deductible. Please contact Veronica PremDas at 615.744.4927 or .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) to learn more.       




We gratefully acknowledge the generosity of our current Art Deco Society members.
