Cheng-Harrell Open Night: Drawing Inspiration from The Eveillard Gift
Friday, November 4, 2022

5:00 to 9:00 p.m.


The Open Nights series continues with a free evening of after-hours museum and reading room access at Frick Madison. Inspired by The Eveillard Gift—the fall exhibition showcasing the Frick’s most significant acquisition of drawings and pastels—visitors will be invited to sketch from works in the galleries or practice figure drawing with costumed models. Art materials will be provided, and artists of all abilities are welcome! The event will also include talks on the featured exhibition, as well as on fashion and Van Dyck, the diptych installation of works by Olafur Eliasson and Claude Monet, and the resources of the Frick Art Reference Library. Live music and complimentary refreshments  will be on offer all night long.

Both American Sign Language interpreters and Assistive Listening Devices are available at all talks. Please pick up Assistive Listening Devices near the lobby elevators.

Please note: Masks are strongly encouraged for all visitors. Children under 10 are not admitted.
