The Frist Offers Free Admission Mondays with Donations of Food to Second Harvest, Beg. 10/28

Beginning Monday, October 28, the Frist Center for the Visual Arts will continue its holiday tradition of offering free admission to guests bringing non-perishable food items to donate to the Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee on Mondays through December 30. The items most needed by Second Harvest are peanut butter, canned meat, canned vegetables, canned fruit, pasta and cereal. "We anticipate an increase in demand for the next several months due to cuts to Food Stamp distributions," said Jaynee Day, president and CEO of Second Harvest. "Food donations will help us respond to the need and ensure that families can put food on the table every night."

Organized in 1978, Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee is a private, not-for-profit, tax-exempt organization. Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee's mission is to feed hungry people and work to solve hunger issues in our community. Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee is one of the largest and most comprehensive of over 200 food banks and food distribution centers nationwide and also a member of Feeding America - The Nation's Food Bank Network. Second Harvest distributes food and other products to approximately 400 nonprofit partner agencies in 46 counties in Middle and West Tennessee. Their partners include food pantries, soup kitchens, shelters, childcare facilities, senior centers, group homes, and youth enrichment programs.

American Chronicles: The Art of Norman Rockwell

Nov. 1, 2013-Feb. 9, 2014 Upper-Level Galleries

Norman Rockwell, one of America's most beloved and recognized artists, honed his visual storytelling abilities creating illustrations for some of the nation's most prominent publications, and is fondly remembered for his emotionally appealing, idealized scenes of early 20th century American life. Rockwell's images portray scenes of human triumph and frailty with affectionate humor, dignity and kindness, often emphasizing the importance of tolerance and America's democratic ideals.

Featuring over 40 paintings and a selection of drawings, tear-sheets, and other related works, including original Saturday Evening Post covers, American Chronicles: The Art of Norman Rockwell traces the evolution of Rockwell's art and iconography throughout his career-from carefully choreographed reflections on childhood innocence to consciousness-raising images documenting the traumatic realities of desegregation in the South.

American Chronicles: The Art of Norman Rockwell has been organized by the Norman Rockwell Museum in Stockbridge, Massachusetts.

Presenting Sponsors: Anne and Joe Russell Supporting Sponsor: Christie's
