If you’ve lived in Nashville long enough and are at least remotely plugged into our town’s music history, you know the signature look of a Hatch Show Print poster. Celebrating nearly a century and a half, Hatch is one of the oldest active poster print shops in America. The shop has a rich history of marrying music (and other events) with art. The exhibit Every Poster Tells a Story: 140 Years of Hatch Show Print takes you back to its founding in 1879 and brings you through pivotal periods of its history into its modern-day mantra: “preservation through production.” Art-loving kids will surely marvel at the posters, blocks and other memorabilia on display.
The exhibit is located in the Community Corridor that connects the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum to the Omni Hotel, viewable 24 hours a day. Admission is free.

SPOTLIGHT: J.M.W. TURNER AT THE FRIST
Joseph Mallord William (J.M.W.) Turner was one of England's greatest artists and a leading figure in the Romantic Movement that swept the late 18th through mid-19th centuries. His work is known for its dramatic contrast of gloomy clouds and intense light. Through Sunday, May 31, your family can explore Turner's work through the exhibit, J.M.W. Turner: Quest for the Sublime. The exhibit displays 70 oil paintings and watercolors spanning the artist's career — and it's the second largest exhibit in the United States devoted to Turner. Frist hours are Mon – Wed 10 a.m. – 5:30 p.m., Thu – Fri 10 a.m. – 9 p.m., Sat 10 a.m. – 5:30 p.m., Sun 1 – 5:30 p.m. Admission is $15 adults, free ages 18 & younger.
