William B. Bodine Jr., director of the Frick Art & Historical Center in Point Breeze, has announced his plans to retire at the end of June 2014.

“My 12 years as director of the Frick have been the most satisfying and productive of my long museum career,” he says. “With the support of the board of trustees and our dedicated staff, we have enriched the Frick's educational programs and transformed the Frick into a place of community engagement.”

The site is the home of the Frick Art Museum; Clayton, the home of industrialist Henry Clay Frick; a Car and Carriage Museum; a working greenhouse; an education center; and a cafe. A summer concert series also is held there and a new orientation center will be opened by mid-2014.

David A. Brownlee, chairman of the board, says the board is “deeply grateful for all that he has contributed to the Frick during his long tenure as director. By June 2014, Bill will have completed 12 eventful and productive years with the Frick, a period of great progress for the institution.”

Before his appointment as director in 2002, Bodine held positions as a curator and museum administrator at such institutions as the Columbia Museum of Art in South Carolina, the High Museum of Art in Atlanta, Ga., the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., and the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.
