Whenever I participate in Frick Forum, I feel like I am being let in on a great secret. After each Forum session, my eyes open wider; I see every work we discuss in a new light. An incomparable setting, treasures of great art, masterful teachers, and students who are thrilled to participate make everything at the Frick come alive.

Inquiring minds are invited to join the Frick Forum, a program for teen art enthusiasts that promotes close looking and intellectual discussion. Forum members will convene bi-monthly on Fridays between February and May to discover great works of art in the permanent collection and special exhibitions. Highlights of the upcoming season include a discussion of Renaissance bronze sculpture with private collector Tom Hill, a thought-provoking overview of the discipline of art history with Professor Michelle Millar Fisher, an introduction to Hans Holbein's dueling portraits of Thomas More and Thomas Cromwell with Kress Interpretive Fellow Nathaniel Prottas, and a surprise art dialogue with Head of Education Rika Burnham! Students who attend all eight sessions will be considered for the Frick's competitive Summer Study Projects program. This free program for high school students is by application only.
Applications for the spring 2015 Frick Forum program will be posted in late 2014.
