Frist Art Museum Announces Public Programs For THE NASHVILLE FLOOD: TEN YEARS LATER

The Frist Art Museum presents The Nashville Flood: Ten Years Later, an exhibition commemorating the city's historic natural disaster in 2010. The exhibition will be on view in the always-free Conte Community Arts Gallery from January 10 through May 17, 2020.

Through photographs and excerpts of oral histories from the Nashville Public Library's flood archive and The Tennessean, the exhibition will present a broad picture of both the destruction and the relief efforts from ten different neighborhoods in Davidson County, including Antioch, Belle Meade, Bellevue, Bordeaux, and others, in addition to downtown.
