PITTSBURGH, March 29, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Frick Pittsburgh in Point Breeze announces that it will remain open every Friday evening until 9:00 p.m., beginning Friday, April 1, 2016. All of the Frick's public venues will remain open during extended Friday evening hours.
The Frick's new hours of operation are:
Tuesday through Sunday: 10:00 a.m.–5:00 p.m.
Friday: 10:00 a.m.–9:00 p.m.
Admission to the Frick and gardens is free.
Regarding this permanent change in hours, Frick Director Robin Nicholson remarks, "Last year we were open on Friday evenings during the summer months, and the response was overwhelmingly positive. Along with our expansion of business hours, the creation of a welcoming new pedestrian entrance at the northwest corner of our site and construction of several new walking paths are intended to make the lush 5.5-acre Frick grounds and gardens even more accessible and further enhance the experience of our visitors."
In addition, the Frick has created a new public entrance at the corner of Penn and South Homewood Avenues, which opens to the public on April 1. This entrance provides pedestrians with a convenient alternative to the existing public entrance on Reynolds Street, on the southern end of the Frick's park-like site, and connects to a new network of asphalt walking paths that circumnavigate the entire site. Visitors can now explore the richly landscaped northeast side of the estate and enjoy fresh vistas and perspectives of Clayton and the surrounding lawns. A second path winds its way from Clayton down the western side of the property, offering an alternative approach to The Frick Art Museum, as well as beautiful views of the historic entrance to Frick Park.
Beginning in summer 2016, the Frick announces the expansion of Summer Fridays at the Frick— a public programming series that debuted last season. Every Friday from June 17 to September 2, 2016, the Frick will offer an exciting and diverse lineup of entertaining performances, family-friendly activities, wine bars and varied dining options, including dinner at The Café at the Frick, casual food from local food trucks, and the opportunity to picnic on the lush Frick grounds. A complete schedule and details will be announced in May 2016.
Information is available at TheFrickPittsburgh.org or 412-371-0600.
