• Hatch Show Print: In this age of cheap ink jet printers, some people have lost appreciation for the intricate work that old-fashioned letterpress printing entails. But not Hatch Show Print in downtown Nashville. Using techniques from the 1500s that meld designing and printing into a creative art form, this shop produces posters for stars, businesses, and individuals. More than 10,000 old-style wooden typeface blocks are being preserved in a revival of letterpress printing techniques.

• Frist Center for the Visual Arts: Located in a former U. S. Post Office building (an historical delight in itself), this center brings visual art and major exhibitions to downtown Nashville. With education as a primary objective, many programs are geared to families with children.
