I like art galleries/museums, but don't love them. My sister-in-law was in town and wanted to get a little "culture", so we decided to go to the Frist Center.
First, I will say that it was very easy to find, which is really helpful in an unfamiliar city (we're all from NY, and had just moved a few weeks before). Parking was easy, and inexpensive ($3 or so, i believe).
Upon entering, we discovered that the Frist gives discounts for students, military service members, and seniors. It also gives groups discounts, and people under 18 are free.
Based on my visit and the quality of art when I went, I would definitely recommend visiting and will visit again, myself.
When you are there, look at the floors. :)
Exhibits when I visited:
The gallery had a showing called "Monet to Dali". It was wonderful! I didn't really have high expectations since it was my first visit, and was very impressed at the work in the gallery (Renior, Picasso, Van Gogh, etc). The way the rooms were set up was wonderful, and they flowed easily from period to period.
There was another exhibit called "Eros and Thantos" by Angelo Filomeno. These were unique crafted embroidery pieces, and the artist was there to talk about them!
