The Frick Collection opened its historic Fifth Avenue Garden for the Spring Garden Party on June 7, 2017, a festive evening of art, music, and dancing. This year's Spring Garden Party coincided with the opening of Fired by Passion: Masterpieces of Du Paquier Porcelain from the Sullivan Collection.

An evening of cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, and live jazz under the magnolia trees was enjoyed in the beautiful Fifth Avenue Garden, which is opened only once a year for this very special event. After the sun set over Central Park, the party continued with dessert and dancing in the Music Room. Throughout the night, guests viewed magnificent works of art from the permanent collection and the special exhibition galleries, as well as explored the mansion’s rarely seen second floor.

Not a Fellow or Young Fellow? Join today to receive a complimentary invitation for you and a guest to next year’s highly anticipated Spring Garden Party.
