The Frick Collection is closed and will soon embark on its first major renovation in eighty-five years. It will reopen to the public in early 2021 at Frick Madison. »


Museum

The Frick Collection is an art museum consisting of more than 1,500 works of art from the ninth to the nineteenth century, displayed in the intimate surroundings of the former home of Pittsburgh industrialist Henry Clay Frick. The residence is one of New York City’s few remaining Gilded Age mansions. The Collection with its furnishings and works of art has been open to the public since 1935, and has continued to acquire works of art since the founder's death.

Building Project

The Frick Collection will reopen to the public in early 2021 in the former home of the Whitney Museum of American Art at 945 Madison Avenue. The temporary location, called Frick Madison, will house the Frick’s collections, programs, and staff during the renovation and expansion of its historic buildings at 1 East 70th Street. Following a rigorous public review of the design by Selldorf Architects, the Frick is planning to break ground in early 2021, with pre-construction preparations beginning in fall 2020.

In addition, the Frick Art Reference Library has created several online programs, including free webinars to help researchers learn innovative ways to remotely access books and images not only from the Frick but from other library collections around the world.
