The Frick at Your Fingertips: Biweekly Highlights



The Frick at your Fingertips



We are entering an exciting new chapter at The Frick Collection! Thank you for all your support, visits, and engagement during our time at Frick Madison—we hope you enjoyed exploring new ways of experiencing our collection as much as we did!

While our galleries are closed as we complete our renovation, there are many fresh ways to stay connected to the Frick. Among these are a fascinating video series about our building project and a robust program of online offerings. Teachers and students are welcome to book free online guided visits, which look closely at and engage critically with works from the permanent collection. Plus, the Frick Art Reference Library's temporary reading room remains open by free appointment.





As we prepare for the move back to our renovated home later this year, we are excited to refresh our branding with a return to the distinctive “Frick red” in an updated, modern approach to our classic look.



Renovation Stories

While our buildings are closed, join us for behind-the-scenes looks at our ongoing renovation and enhancement in a new video series, Renovation Stories. Episodes will feature key figures in the project who will share insights on the progress of the institution’s historic buildings.

Renovation Stories will be released every two weeks—first to members starting today, then to general audiences the following week via our social media channels. The first video will explore how the Frick's extraordinary archives have informed the renovation from planning to execution. Get ready for the new series by taking a look back at past renovation updates.

For early access to the videos, join as a member today.
