The Frick Pittsburgh announces appointment of Robin H. Gabriel as Director of Education
Ms. Gabriel holds an A.B. degree from Kenyon College and received an M.A.T. in Museum Education from The George Washington University, Washington, D.C.
PITTSBURGH, PA.- Frick Art & Historical Center Director Bill Bodine announces the appointment of Robin H. Gabriel to the position of Director of Education, a senior management-level position. The Frick provides educational programs for children, students, adults and families that serve more than 14,000 individuals annually.

Ms. Gabriel holds an A.B. degree from Kenyon College and received an M.A.T. in Museum Education from The George Washington University, Washington, D.C. She will be relocating to Pittsburgh from Baltimore, MD, where she recently served as Director of Education and Interpretation at the Baltimore Museum of Industry. Prior to holding this post, she served as the first director of education at the Thomas Jefferson Foundation in Charlottesville, VA. (The Foundation is the organizational name for Monticello, the historic home of Thomas Jefferson.) At Monticello, Ms. Gabriel served as the Hunter J. Smith Director of Education from 1986-2009. In that position, she contributed to the design and planning of the Thomas Jefferson Visitor Center and Smith Education Center that opened to the public in 2009. Additionally, she led the team responsible for the design and installation of the Griffin Discovery Room, an interactive family learning space.

Frick director Bill Bodine says, "Education is essential to the Frick's mission, and Robin Gabriel brings considerable experience, knowledge and expertise to her new position in Pittsburgh. I'm pleased to have her join the management team."

The Frick Art & Historical Center is the legacy of Helen Clay Frick, daughter of 19th-century industrialist and art collector Henry Clay Frick. Having established The Frick Art Museum in 1969, Miss Frick desired that her family home, Clayton, and the surrounding estate be preserved for, and opened to, the people of Pittsburgh. Miss Frick passed away in 1984, and left an endowment to enable the realization of her vision for this site. Following an extensive restoration, Clayton opened to the public as a historic house museum in 1990. Over 90% of Clayton's furnishings are original, and public tours of the home are offered year-round.

The Frick Art & Historical Center houses a galaxy of collections-including fine arts, decorative arts, automobiles and carriages, and historic artifacts- in multiple galleries and venues, many of which are historic objects in and of themselves. These collections, and the programs that interpret them, illuminate the era during which Pittsburgh became one of the nation's most important cities and also make meaningful connections to contemporary times. Although still a relatively young institution, the Frick ranks among Pittsburgh's most important cultural and educational assets. The museum is visited by over 130,000 people annually.
