The Frick Collection is pleased to announce that beginning this December – and for the first time in its history – the museum will offer the public an ongoing program of free, regularly-scheduled gallery talks.  The talks will be given on the first and third Friday evening of each month at 6:30 p.m.  Each 20- to 30-minute presentation addresses an individual highlight from the Frick’s celebrated collection of paintings, sculpture, and decorative arts.  The program will be inaugurated on Friday, December 5, with a talk called A Gilded Age Studiolo: The Enamels Room in the Frick House, followed on Friday, December 19, with a presentation on John Constable’s painting Salisbury Cathedral.  Talks continue in January and every month thereafter with different topics. This program will enhance the new Friday evening hours currently offered by the Frick, when the museum remains open until 9 p.m., with refreshments available in the Garden Court from 6 p.m.   There is no additional charge for these talks and reservations are not required (the topics are also subject to change).  The presentation given on the third Friday of each month will be Sign Language interpreted.  Additionally, this December, the Frick will be open to the public from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. on Christmas Eve, Wednesday, December 24, for the first time in its history.
