With the support of a major grant from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, The Frick Collection is able to reinstitute its predoctoral curatorial fellowship program and announces the name of the first participant, Yvonne Elet, who has recently assumed a two-year residency.  The original fellowship program was established in 1935.  Participants have become directors, curators, and leaders in their fields, and it is hoped that the restored program will contribute significantly toward the development of the next generation of museum professionals.  Over the course of six years, the Frick will welcome five Andrew W. Mellon Fellows.  Throughout their period of work on Frick Collection projects, these participants will receive valuable object-based training and have access to supervision, resources, and contacts that may assist them in finishing their doctoral dissertations.
