Martin ArtQuest Closing for Renovation
ArtQuest Temporarily Moves to Our Studios
We are excited to announce that on Monday, January 29, we will begin a complete renovation of the award-winning Martin ArtQuest Gallery. Scheduled to reopen on Thursday, May 24, the updated gallery will feature enhanced activities focused on creative collaboration, critical thinking, and communication.
Don't worry! We will continue to provide hands-on art-making opportunities during the renovation. From January 29 through May 23, some of the existing art stations and activities will be moved into the adjacent studio classroom spaces on the upper level of the Frist Art Museum. Join us for art-making fun seven days a week!
Soundsuit Hand Dancers
Nick Cave’s human-shaped sculptures, called soundsuits, are often made from everyday materials such as beads, buttons, and old toys. When worn by performers, these soundsuits come alive as instruments of creative expression. Create your own mini-soundsuit on a hand dancer, with a wild array of art materials, at our Exploring Exhibitions station.
