In the wake of opening their highly anticipated Chuck Close show, the Frist Center's Museums in the 21st Century exhibit continues to resonate with the ongoing local conversation the art community is having about architecture. Adding more fuel to the fire, the Frist turns a spotlight on itself, offering art and architecture lovers alike the chance to find out more about the history behind our beautiful downtown art facility. This is the first of three free tours the Frist will offer over the summer months, and a cash bar and live music set the mood for the after-tour discussion.
Usual cost of admission
We’re pretty sure that, like us, you’re wondering why in the heck anyone would go swing dancing at the Farmers’ Market — it’s not exactly the epitome of elegance. The best we can figure is that after a couple of hours of high-steppin’ to Rick Jobe and Tuxedo Junction, you’re going to get really, really hungry and want the path between you and sustenance to be as short as possible. Or you could be just like us and looking for any excuse to hang out at the Farmers’ Market — the longer you’re there, the easy it is to rationalize buying more food than you can fit in your refrigerator, which in turn makes it easier to rationalize eating way more than you should. (We can’t let all that delicious food go to waste, amiright?) And then when you’re good and stuffed, you can jump back on the dance floor and dance those calories away.
