Frick Collection (New York, NY 10021-4981)
Xavier Salomon (Project Director: May 2020 to present)
The Frick Collection: Virtual Programs in Response to COVID-19

The retention of twenty-two staff members to develop and produce online programming on the Frick collection.

On March 12, 2020, The Frick Collection closed its galleries and offices to assist public health services in their efforts to slow the spread of COVID-19. A National Endowment for the Humanities CARES grant of $300,000 would support both employee salaries and, in turn, the important virtual programs that the Frick’s Curatorial, Education, Library, and Digital staff members are developing and producing throughout COVID-19. The Frick has a long-standing commitment to the excellence of its digital content, and was one of the first museums to offer a virtual tour in 1998. In great times of stress, art has the power to lift spirits and make sense of the present. With the Frick closed, its staff has been devising new ways to interpret its collections outside of its physical space. Given the ever-changing nature of this global pandemic and the needs of the public, the Frick will adjust its virtual programming accordingly throughout the grant period.
