This coming year marks the 75th anniversary of The Frick Collection, the beloved museum housed in one of New York City’s remaining Gilded-Age mansions on Fifth Avenue. To celebrate this milestone, the Frick has created an entirely new visitor education film, which replaces a seventeen-year-old production. The film will air daily, three times every hour. Narrated by members of the Frick’s senior staff, this eleven-minute presentation was produced and directed by award-winning filmmaker Christopher Noey. Shot in HD throughout the Frick’s refurbished and relit galleries, it tells the story of Mr. Frick, his home, and his art collection. It includes recently restored archival footage and other previously unreleased materials. The Frick, which is proud to be part of WNET’s membercard program, is pleased to share this film with Thirteen’s viewers. For further information about The Frick Collection, visit www.frick.org.
