Autumn Dinner

On October 16, 2017, The Frick Collection hosted its annual Autumn Dinner. This year’s black-tie event honored Frick trustee Margot Bogert, who retired as the board chairman in June after 12 years. The festive evening, held at the elegant Frick mansion, was a magical experience celebrating one of America’s finest museums.  Indeed, the event is the only sit-down dinner held in the museum’s monumental picture galleries, among masterpieces dating from the Renaissance through the nineteenth century.
 
Bogert was the first individual outside the Frick family to lead the institution as Board Chair when she was elected in 2005. Since then, she has partnered with two Directors to chart a course for the Frick’s next century, and made inestimable contributions through her enthusiasm and leadership. She has passionately supported the museum’s acquisitions program as well as numerous special exhibitions, including Jean-Étienne Liotard: Swiss Master (2006), Andrea del Sarto: The Renaissance Workshop in Action (2015–16), and Porcelain, No Simple Matter: Arlene Shechet and the Arnhold Collection (2016–17).  She has also been instrumental in expanding the institution’s educational programs and museum membership. Bogert will continue to play a vital leadership role on the Board as head of several key committees.
