The Frick Collection Free Admission First Fridays

Free Admission First Fridays at The Frick Collection - see INFO below. A visit to The Frick Collection evokes the splendor and tranquility of a time gone by and at the same time testifies to the power of great art collections to inspire viewers today. Housed in the New York City mansion built by Henry Clay Frick (1849-1919), one of America's most successful industrialists, are masterpieces of Western painting, sculpture, and decorative art, displayed in a serene and intimate setting. Each of the Collection's sixteen permanent galleries offers a unique presentation of artworks arranged for the most part without regard to period or national origin, akin to the way Mr. Frick enjoyed the art he loved before bequeathing it to the public. Both the mansion and the works within it serve as a monument to one of America's greatest art collectors. Built in 1913-14 from designs by the firm Carrre and Hastings, the house is set back from Fifth Avenue by an elevated garden punctuated by three magnificent magnolia trees. Since Mr. Frick's death in 1919, the Collection has expanded both its physical dimensions and its holdings. Nearly half of the Collection's paintings and several important sculptures and decorative art objects have been acquired since then, and three times in 193135, 1977, and in 2011 the building has been enlarged to better serve the public.
