About the Frist Gala
The Frist Gala and its Patron Party are among the premier social events in Nashville. As the primary fundraiser for the Frist Center for the Visual Arts, the Frist Gala nets more than $600,000 each year to support the museum’s education and outreach programs. Attendees include corporate and civic leaders from across Middle Tennessee. The 2017 Gala will take its thematic inspiration from the Frist Center’s presentation of Secrets of Buddhist Art: Tibet, Japan, and Korea from the Newark Museum in New Jersey.
