Like puzzles? Like beautiful Pittsburgh places? Try Letterboxing at the Frick! Letterboxing is an historic pastime where people work together in an activity that combines puzzle-solving, orienteering, and art. After making individual rubber stamps, team up to read maps, solve word puzzle clues and use a compass to find hidden containers, or letterboxes, on the beautifully landscaped historic Frick grounds.

Held rain or shine. Dress for the weather.

Enjoy a Girasole boxed lunch at the Frick before the workshop.

The music of the Beatles and the Vietnam War form the backdrop for this romance between an upper-class American girl (Evan Rachel Wood) and a poor Liverpudlian artist (Jim Sturgess). Golden Globe-nominated for Best Motion Picture and Grammy-nominated for Best Compilation Soundtrack, over 30 Beatles’ songs are woven into the plot together with visual allusions to their timeless films.
