First Fridays

Museum admission and gallery programs will be free from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. on the first Friday evening of the month (except September and January). Visitors will have access to the permanent collection and special exhibition galleries, and enjoy talks and lectures by museum educators and curators, as well as music and dance performances and open sketching in the Garden Court (complimentary materials provided by the Frick).


Principal support for First Fridays is provided by the Stavros Niarchos Foundation, with additional funding from Margot and Jerry Bogert, Barbara G. Fleischman, Sally and Howard Lepow, the Gilder Foundation, and Marianna and Juan Sabater.

First Fridays also are supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.
