The Frick at Your Fingertips

We're pleased to share that in early 2021 the Frick will reopen to the public in the modernist Marcel Breuer building at 945 Madison Avenue. The temporary location, called Frick Madison, will house the Frick's collection, programs, and staff, ensuring our art and resources remain available to the public during the renovation of our historic home at 1 East 70th Street.

From 2021 through 2022, Frick Madison will present an installation of masterpieces from the permanent collection, inviting new perspectives while still offering an intimate viewing experience. To learn more about our upcoming building plans visit frickfuture.org.

Follow the Frick on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter to stay up to date on Collection news and events. Starting in August, the Frick at Your Fingertips newsletter will be delivered on a biweekly basis, continuing to keep you connected with quality content while the Collection is temporarily closed.
