The Frick is well known for the quality of its exhibitions, which range from small exhibitions of single iconic paintings to sweeping surveys of the work of an artist or group of artists. The Frick’s exhibitions are funded exclusively by outside supporters. The Collection is delighted to partner with corporations, foundations, and individuals to present its exciting exhibitions to our large and international audience. Sponsorship opportunities are available at various levels and offer significant philanthropic and marketing opportunities. Sponsorship opportunities are also available for smaller installations and thematic exhibitions highlighting works from the Collection’s holdings in all media.
Frick Art Reference Library
The Frick Art Reference Library, one of America’s oldest and most respected research centers for the study of art, welcomes more than 6,000 researchers each year to consult its remarkable bibliographic, photographic, and archival collections, covering art in the Western tradition from the fourth to the mid-twentieth century. The Frick Art Reference Library presents lectures and symposia, which may be underwritten, as may be the general operations of the library.
The Frick’s Education Department strives to provide a vital, diverse, and probing dialogue between The Frick Collection and the public through a commitment to excellence in gallery teaching and an array of programs of the highest quality. Gifts to the Education Department can help to underwrite lectures, seminars, or gallery experiences, as well as a variety of free after-school programs for students and guided school visits for children over the age of 10. Your contribution can support the broad range of activities provided by the Department or can be directed to a specific activity or program such as a lecture or a virtual class visit.
The Conservation Department oversees the daily maintenance of works of art in the galleries and storage, conservation needs related to temporary exhibitions, and management of ongoing gallery improvements to ensure that historic preservation standards are met. The Conservation Department plays a central role in the installation and lighting of works of art and executes the entire museum’s art handling and movement. In addition to the preservation of the permanent collection, the Conservation Department helps to disseminate knowledge about the collection and its care through presentations at professional forums, in publications, and at seminars and symposia.
