Bring your pencils and paintbrushes — it’s a paint-in on East 70th Street!
TOMORROW Tuesday, November 17th
11:30AM to 12:30PM
Russell Page Garden (sidewalk)
East 70th Street
Why a paint-in? To celebrate the 41st anniversary* of the expanded Individual Landmark designation of The Frick Collection, protecting the idyllic Russell Page Garden and the Reception Hall Pavilion, designed by architects John Barringotn Bayley and Harry van Dyke.
Tomorrow’s paint-in is an opportunity for all of us who rallied in support of responsible alternatives at the Frick to come together in celebration of these wonderful works of landscape and architectural design – and, importantly, to remind all that the fate of the Page garden and complementary Pavilion is still in limbo. While the Frick is now back at the proverbial drawing board, we must remain vigilant!
As we did in the Spring (see highlights below), Unite to Save the Frick is joining with artist Kate Schelter and blogger James Andrew for a morning of artistic inspiration on the sidewalk before the Page garden. Bring your own supplies and let this urban oasis inspire your canvas. See you there!
* Individual Landmark designation was expanded on November 12th, 1974. Click here to learn more about the city, state and national landmark designations of the Frick.
