“The Frick offers a unique and intimate vantage point to take in its stunning collection, allowing visitors the opportunity to experience world-class art as the Frick family once did in the midst of their New York home. As Chairman of the Young Fellows Steering Committee, I have the privilege of working with the museum’s staff and the rest of the committee to promote and support exhibitions and activities that encourage people of my generation to experience and embrace the Frick. With such an elegant and well-curated museum, I find that once someone visits, they are apt to return.” - Sloan Overstrom
