Frick Art & Historical Center to extend Friday hours permanently

| Tuesday, March 29, 2016, 1:54 p.m.

The Frick Art & Historical Center in Point Breeze has announced a permanent change in hours, now staying open until 9 p.m. on Fridays, and and an expansion of its free entertainment on summer Fridays.

Effective April 1, the hours of operation will be 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays through Sundays and 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Fridays.

All of the Frick's public venues, including the Grable Visitor Center, Clayton, Frick Art Museum, Car and Carriage Museum, greenhouse, Frick Museum Store and the Cafe at the Frick will remain open during the extended Friday hours.

“Last year, we were open on Friday evenings during the summer months, and the response was overwhelmingly positive,” Frick Director Robin Nicholson said in the announcement.

Summer entertainment at the Frick will no longer be limited to the first Fridays of summer months, according to Nicholson.

Summer Fridays at the Frick will be a free, 12-week outdoor series of performing arts from June 17 to Sept. 2. Performances will be at various locations on the Frick grounds each week beginning at 6:30 p.m. A complete schedule and details will be announced in May.

Nicholson also announced that a new pedestrian entrance at the corner of Penn and South Homewood avenues will open to the public April 1.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
