Donate to the Annual Fund

With your help we can continue to inspire people through art to look at their world in new ways.

Boy holding artThe Frist Center for the Visual Arts is a reality today because in 2001 our community shared a vision that Middle Tennessee could, and should, become a cultural center where people of all ages have access to world-class art—a place where area residents and visitors are delighted and inspired. Thank you for sharing with us these past sixteen years of exhibitions, programs, and community outreach.

As we look forward to the future, we ask you to be a part of the continuing story by supporting our Annual Fund. Your gift in any amount enriches our community and ensures a future of creating, discovery, inspiring, and changing lives through art.
