Each spring, supporters of The Frick Collection and their guests look forward to the Young Fellows Ball, the museum’s highly anticipated annual benefit event. The event’s theme this year, “Modern Love,” was inspired by the current year-long installation series Living Histories: Queer Views and Old Masters.

This year’s event took place on Thursday, March 31, in partnership with Saks Fifth Avenue, First Republic Bank, and Carolina Herrera, with additional support from Tito’s Handmade Vodka, Desolas Mezcal, and Quinn Rosé.

For the first time, the Young Fellows Ball was held at Frick Madison, the museum’s temporary new home, in the iconic modernist building on the Upper East Side designed by Marcel Breuer.

Nearly 500 guests, many inspired by the evening’s romantic theme, “Modern Love,” filled Frick Madison for cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, and dancing to music by Angel + Dren. The energy of the evening spread throughout the entire museum, where guests mingled and posed for pictures with the portraits on view in the galleries.
