Both the Collection and the Frick Art Reference Library engage in community outreach and public education programs designed to introduce visitors from all walks of life to the unique experience offered by Frick. The historic buildings of the museum and library, access to scholarly resources, stimulating exhibition and education programs for adults and children, and a lively concert and lecture series all provide ample reasons to visit the Frick, which is annually host to nearly 300,000 visitors from around the world. Throughout the year, there are many opportunities to underwrite one of the Frick’s public programs or events, each of which offers significant exposure and credit, including but not limited to the following:
Closely linked to the Frick’s permanent collection is its special exhibitions program, the centerpiece of our programming and a vital way of extending our mission.
The Frick’s educational partnerships have enabled us to introduce this world-renowned museum to more than 2,000 students and individuals annually, while fostering collaborations with teachers, educators, and other partners from the five boroughs of New York City.
Open to the public and free of charge, the Frick Art Reference Library serves nearly 6,000 scholars, art professionals, students, and other researchers annually, offering its users some of the most comprehensive research tools available.
Since 1938, The Frick Collection has delighted thousands of visitors with world-class concerts—piano recitals, quartets, soloists, and early music ensembles on period instruments—including many New York debuts of nationally and internationally acclaimed musicians.
The goal of the Conservation program is to protect, study, document, and care for the Frick’s renowned collection of fine and decorative arts and to attend to the urgent capital needs of its historic buildings, a multi-year undertaking that will conserve their interior and exterior spaces and ultimately provide a more accessible and welcoming experience for our visitors.
The Center for the History of Collecting was established at the Frick Art Reference Library in 2007 to encourage and support the study of the formation of collections of fine and decorative arts, both public and private, in Europe and the United States from the Renaissance to the present day.
