The Spring Collection

The landscaped acres of the Frick Art & Historical Center's lawn and gardens provide a fresh canvas for spring's bridal fashion of duchess silk satin, diamond white tulle and jeweled tiaras.

Art, elegance and bridal style convene at The Frick Art & Historical Center and the grounds of the restored 19th century residence of Henry Clay Frick. The complex of museums and turn-of-the-century buildings is enriched with Victorian surroundings of pre-20th century European Art and is the legacy of Mr. Frick’s daughter Helen Clay Frick. Nestled in the quiet, residential neighborhood of Point Breeze, visitors take in the sights of the The Frick Art Museum, the Car and Carriage Museum, The Café, The Visitor’s Center and Museum Shop, Lexington Education Center, the Greenhouse and the Clayton. The landscaped acres of the Frick Art & Historical Center’s lawn and gardens provide a fresh canvas for spring’s bridal fashion of duchess silk satin, diamond white tulle and jeweled tiaras.
