2020 in Review: The Collection from Home

For most of 2020, in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic and in preparation for our reopening at Frick Madison, the Frick was unable to welcome visitors into a physical space. Instead, we improvised with a wide range of digital content to maintain the unique and intimate encounters with art for which we are known. 

Here's how online visitors most enjoyed connecting with the Collection over the past year. Thanks so much for staying in touch! We look forward to expanding on these digital programs and can't wait to see you in person at Frick Madison.
