The Frick Pittsburgh announces extended hours of operation, new pedestrian entrance and paths
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.

PITTSBURGH, PA.- 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, including the Grable Visitor Center, Clayton, The Frick Art Museum, Car and Carriage Museum, Greenhouse, Frick Museum Store and The Café at the Frick-in addition to the grounds and gardens-will remain open during extended Friday evening hours.

Effective April 1, 2016, 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.
Closed Mondays
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."

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, created by opening a gate door in the historic fence that surrounds the Frick property, 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.

A freestanding site directory and map installed inside the new entrance has been designed to assist with visitor orientation, and a bicycle rack-complementing a larger rack in the Frick's parking lot located on Reynolds Street-has been installed at the new entrance for visitors wishing to cycle to the Frick.

The entrance 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.

Robin Nicholson comments, "In addition to increasing access to the Frick's museums, grounds and amenities, our expanded public hours allow us to reconfigure and enhance our schedule of public performances. Summer entertainment at the Frick will no longer be limited to the first Fridays of summer months."

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.

In addition to the free entertainment programming, Summer Fridays will provide visitors multiple opportunities to view Killer Heels: the Art of the High-Heeled Shoe at The Frick Art Museum from June 11-September 4, 2016; tour Clayton, the historic Frick family home; visit the recently renovated and expanded Car and Carriage Museum; and shop the distinctive selection of merchandise at The Frick Museum Store in the Grable Visitor Center.

Summer Fridays at the Frick gives local favorites and innovative new offerings equal billing during a 12-week outdoor series of performing arts, featuring a diverse variety of music, dance, art, fashion, film, children's programming, and other entertainment appealing to all ages and tastes. These admission-free performances are held at various locations on the Frick grounds each week beginning at 6:30 p.m. Season highlights include: local rock band Meeting of Important People, Bodiography Contemporary Ballet, ElectroBelly Dance & Music, Trio+ with rapper Shad Ali, musical comedy duo Josh & Gab, In Bed by Ten dance party, Pittsburgh singer-songwriter Rachel B, and a Fashion Night with Cut & Sew Studio. A complete schedule and details will be announced in May.
