Miss Helen Clay Frick was the first to donate to PHLF in 1964. This makes The Frick Art Museum Auditorium at the Frick Art & Historical Center in Point Breeze a fitting place to release “Through the Place.” The one-hour documentary about PHLF’s leadership role in the development of the nation’s historic preservation movement includes historical footage from the 1960s, drone photography of Pittsburgh at dawn and dusk, original music, and comments from nationally recognized historians, preservationists, architects, and authors including David McCullough, Roberta Brandes Gratz, Stanley Lowe, Stan Eckstut, and Peg Breen.

Following a reception with light refreshments from 5:00 to 6:00 pm, Frick Director Robin Nicholson and PHLF President Arthur Ziegler will give opening remarks. The documentary will be shown from 6:15 to 7:15 pm, and the event will conclude by 7:30 pm.
