If you love art, elegant settings, getting dressed up, drinking champagne in a garden while listening to jazz – consider attending the annual Spring Garden Party for Fellows and Young Fellows at The Frick Collection. It is on May 29th from 6:30-10:00 pm.
The Frick Collection is a premier small art museum located in the Henry Clay Frick House on the Upper East Side in Manhattan, New York City. The collection features some of the best-known paintings by major European artists, including the Old Masters, as well as numerous works of sculpture and porcelain. It also has 18th-century French furniture, Limoges enamel, medals, clocks, and textiles.
To show their appreciation for the generous support of their Fellows and Young Fellows, The Frick Collection opens its Fifth Avenue Garden every year for the Spring Garden Party.
It’s one of the swankiest parties in the US where socialites and art lovers can mingle, dancers can dance, and fashionistas can impress with outfits that support the theme of the evening.
This year, the event will include spirits and live jazz underneath magnolia trees.
After the sun sets over Central Park, the party will continue with dessert and dancing in the Music Room and magical night tours through the permanent collection, the special exhibition galleries, and the mansion’s rarely seen second floor.
This year’s event will mark the debut of the temporary installation Elective Affinities: Edmund de Waal at The Frick Collection. The renowned writer and artist Edmund de Waal has crafted site-specific works made of porcelain, steel, gold, marble, and glass, which will be displayed throughout the museum’s main galleries alongside works from the permanent collection.
