Happy Birthday, Frist Center for the Visual Arts!
Work with longtime Frist Center collaborators and Nashville artists James Threalkill and Michael McBride to recreate the 2001 opening-day activity that invited visitors to create an artistic “tile” to be placed in a mural depicting the Frist Center.
