Margot Bogert, Chairman of the Frick’s Board announces the election of three new Trustees Elizabeth “Betty” Eveillard, Monika McLennan, and J. Fife Symington IV. Bogert comments, “We see a bright path ahead as the institution continues to fulfill the mission established by our founder. The Frick achieves this through the care and presentation of the collections of the museum and library as well as the mansion, itself, and by presenting an acclaimed slate of exhibitions and publications. We are also committed to engaging our audiences through free lectures, program-filled public nights, off-hours school visits, in-depth symposia, and other educational offerings. The Board joins me in welcoming to its ranks three new Trustees whose leadership experience comes from a mix of involvement with cultural, educational, and financial institutions.” Director Ian Wardropper adds, “Betty Eveillard has been an engaged and generous supporter for many years; her background as a chair of cultural and educational boards and as a collector will be of great value to the institution. I also look forward to working with Monika McLennan, whose experience with museums in this country and abroad will serve us well. We are delighted to welcome J. Fife Symington IV, a great-great-grandson of our founder to the Board. His voice and perspective as another generation of the Frick family will benefit the institution greatly, as will his energy and acumen as a businessman.”
