Summer Study Projects

The Frick Collection is pleased to offer Summer Study Projects, a four-week program for high school juniors and seniors and college underclassmen with an interest in art and art history. Between July 15 and August 8, participants will pursue independent research and develop public talks on selected portraits in the Frick’s permanent collection, from works by Rembrandt and Hals to Houdon and Ingres. This project is designed to broaden understanding of the Collection, enhance research and presentation skills, and deepen appreciation for the art of portraiture, a genre for which the Frick is renowned. Additionally, students will have the opportunity to meet with museum staff and work behind the scenes in one of New York’s most cherished art institutions. Activities will generally be carried out between 10:30 a.m. and 4:00 p.m., Tuesdays through Thursdays. All projects will culminate in presentations in the program's last week.

Applications for Summer Study Projects must be received no later than April 18, 2014.
