A Day at the Frye

February 13, 2014

KCTS 9 visits the Frye Art Museum on Seattle's First Hill. This dreamy peek into the galleries of the free museum features director Jo-Anne Birnie Danzker and highlights community programs.

Established by Charles and Emma Frye, the Frye Art Museum on First Hill has been providing free artistic experiences to the people of Seattle since 1952. 

"Museums offer a safe environment for very different ideas to be able to be brought together," said Jo-Anne Birnie Danzker, Museum Director of the Frye. "There's almost no art exhibition that doesn't in some way address the larger issues of our lives." 

The Frye, in addition to its art exhibits, offers free programs like school visits, art classes, meditation and more. 

School children visit the Frye Art Museum.
