Saving You Money: Freebie Friday
The Frist Center for the Visual Arts is free this weekend to anyone and everyone.
The main exhibit right now is Looking East, so it makes perfect sense to offer a free day Saturday in conjunction with the Nashville Cherry Blossom Festival.
Ellen Pryor with the Frist explains, "Many of us don't have the opportunity to travel around the world and look you don't have to. You know art form around the world and from Japan is here. "
Art is an integral part of helping children make global connections. If you have young kids and think they don't have the attention span yet for art, think again. Sunday is free family festival day with arts and crafts tied in with Japanese art.
The free weekend at the Frist is sponsored by Nissan, Pinnacle Financial and Nashville Parent.
One more related freebie to tell you about. The Cherry Blossom Festival is free this Saturday on the public lawn in front of the courthouse in downtown Nashville. The Nashville Tree Foundation is giving away free cherry tree seedlings at the festival this weekend. So, stop by and pick up yours.
