Many people know and love the magnificent art collection housed in the Frick Mansion. It is one of the finest small collections anywhere in the world. The mansion is being expanded and the collection needed a temporary new home. It is currently housed in the Breuer building on Madison Avenue (that used to house the Whitney). Curators have taken the opportunity to rehang the collection in new and exciting ways. Suddenly viewers are seeing things they never noticed before. Come see the familiar Frick collection with new eyes. It's a real treat!
