The Frist Art Museum is launching a new exhibition celebrating the unique Art Deco style of the 1920s and 1930s.

  • Open on Fridays, the exhibition includes around 140 pieces, from paintings and sculptures to vacuum cleaners and a 1930 Ford Model A.

Get the meta: If you’re unfamiliar with Art Deco, look no further than the Frist Lobby for a shimmering example.

Local connection: The exhibition includes works by several personalities associated with the Harlem Renaissance, including painter Aaron Douglas, who came to Nashville in 1930 to paint murals for Fisk University. He later returned and established the art department of the university.

The details: The exhibition runs until January 2. You can buy tickets online.
