The much anticipated Sensuous Steel: Art Deco Automobiles is coming to Nashville, Tennessee.

As a special collaboration, the Frist Center, in addition to more than 1,800 museums throughout the U.S., has teamed up with the National Endowment for the Arts, Blue Star Families, and the Department of Defense to offer free admission to all active-duty military members, and their families, between Memorial Day and Labor Day 2013.

Our work with Blue Star Families and with more than 1,800 museums ensure that we can reach out to military families and thank them for their service and sacrifice.”
