This year’s Young Fellows Ball took place on Thursday, March 30, 2023, in partnership with Irene Neuwirth, with additional support from Tito’s Handmade Vodka, Catena Zapata, De Soi, Desolas Mezcal, Old Overholt, and Quinn Rosé. For the second year, the Ball was held at Frick Madison, the museum’s temporary home located in Marcel Breuer’s iconic modernist building on the Upper East Side.
Guests enjoyed a night of art and music along with themed refreshments and hors d’oeuvres and a unique “Step into a Fragonard” photo experience. With special talks and access to the galleries, they were able to experience the Frick’s masterpieces reframed at Frick Madison, a once-in-a-lifetime temporary presentation featuring collection highlights by celebrated artists such as Bellini, Degas, Fragonard, Gainsborough, Ingres, Rembrandt, Titian, Van Dyck, and Veronese.
The Ball’s theme this year, “Bejeweled,” was inspired by the current special exhibition at Frick Madison, The Gregory Gift. The show presents twenty-eight remarkable works of fine and decorative art recently bequeathed to the museum by collector and publisher Alexis Gregory. These eclectic objects, many whimsical in nature, shimmer with gilded surfaces and gemstone accents.
