Frick Art & Historical Center

Description

The Frick Art & Historical Center is a cluster of museums and historical buildings located at 7227 Reynolds Street, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, United States and formed around the Frick family's nineteenth-century residence known as "Clayton". It focuses on the interpretation of the life and times of Henry Clay Frick industrialist and art collector. The complex, located on 5.5acre of lawn and gardens in the city's Point Breeze neighborhood, includes Clayton, the restored Frick mansion; The Frick Art Museum; The Car and Carriage Museum; the Greenhouse; the Frick children's playhouse; and The Café. The site welcomes over 100,000 visitors a year. Admission is free. The current Director is Edinburg Scotland native Robin Nicholson. He was previously the Deputy Director for Art & Education at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts (VMFA) from 2009-2014. Mr. Nicholson became the Frick's third Director in September 2014, following the retirement of Bill Bodine (2002-2014). Helen Clay Frick (1888—1984) was the driving force to preserve the Frick estate and allow it to open to the public after her death.
