What we’re about

Thank you for your interest in the Art, Culture, Film, History and Literature Meetup.  By joining this meetup, you will get to socialize with other arts & culture loving patrons, attend the events with a group, and participate in our literature discussions.  You’ll also have an opportunity to form some new friendships!  We hope you'll join us!
This meetup is for those who appreciate: Art, Literature, Museums, Theater & Performance Art, Musicals, Plays, Cultural attractions, Mansions and gardens, Art galleries, Classical Music, Symphony, Orchestra, Ballet, Dance, Opera, Film, Cinema, Documentaries, and Photography.  We'll also visit local parks like Radnor Lake to appreciate the beauty of nature.
We will have regular literature discussions, usually with a screening of a film adaptation.  We'll also have classic film nights at my home.  There are no membership dues for this group.  If you attend an event at my home and eat/drink, I ask you to bring a food item or give a few dollars to help with the cost of the food, drinks, and serving supplies that I provide.
To protect our members privacy and since some meetups are held in members' homes, new members are approved.  If you sign up to attend an event, please update your rsvp if you can no longer attend.
Before attending an outdoor activity such as a hike, you need to read:
The types of events we may do include TPAC, Nashville Symphony, Tennessee Repertory Theatre, Nashville Opera, Nashville, Ballet, Circle Players, The Frist Center for the Visual Arts, Movies at Belcourt Theatre, Ryman Auditorium, The Nashville Film Festival, Chaffin's Barn Dinner Theatre, Darkhorse Theatre, Cheekwood Botanical Garden & Museum of Art, Artists' Cooperative Theatre, Boiler Room Theatre, Nashville Shakespeare Festival, Theatre Ensemble of Nashville, Zeitgeist Gallery, Stanford Fine Art, Vanderbilt University Fine Arts Gallery, Art at the Arcade, TN State Museum, The Parthenon, Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, Adventure Science Center, and Sudekum Planetarium.
You are encouraged to check out these meetup groups as well where additional film events and fine dining are scheduled:
The Joy of Dining Out with Friends - I'm organizer and sometimes schedule arts related events such as the Pineapple Room Restaurant at Cheekwood:
Horror, Suspense, SciFi and Fantasy Friends - I schedule a lot of films under this group that I don't post under the Arts group.  If films in these genres interest you, please check this group out.
On a final but important note, this meetup group is for appreciation of the Arts. It is NOT a singles meetup. We have married members in the group, members in relationships, and members just not interested in dating. Members have a right not to be harassed. Anyone engaging in creepy behavior towards other members will be removed. If you are only looking for dates or hook-ups, this is not the group for you. There are plenty of dating sites and singles groups for that.
