For 62 years, I have passed the Frick near the corner of Penn and Homewood Avenues. About two weeks ago, on a Friday, my sister and I went to the “Killer Heels” exhibit. By the time you read this, the exhibit will be over. If you love shoes or art you would have loved this exhibit. I just enjoyed the surroundings and the unique shoes on display. There were shoes from the past and shoes that looked like they belonged in the future.
After viewing the exhibit, we decided to experience what is known as “Fridays at the Frick.” Families and singles were enjoying the beautiful grounds. Many had their folding lawn chairs, picnic baskets and bottles of wine. There were food trucks and fashion trucks. On that night, there was a children’s fashion show and then we found the crown jewel of the evening, a display of antique cars. Cue that music they use when the gates of heaven open up and everything gets real bright. The cars and carriages on display were beautiful and ranged from an 1881 Brougham to a 1940 American Bantam Convertible.
