In recent years, The Frick Collection has expanded its education offerings to further engage the public. Among the most successful of these efforts is a series of free Friday evenings, which will double in number to ten through next June. The Free Nights program provides after-hours access to the museum and programs such as lectures, gallery talks, music, performances, and sketching. There is no charge for the evenings, which take their inspiration from the permanent collection and special exhibitions. While most nights are for the general public, selected events are for high school, college, and graduate students. The Free Nights series at The Frick Collection is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council, and by the Gilder Foundation.
