The Frick Collection hosted their first Pride event at the Frick: A Cheng-Harrell Midsummer Evening. Inspired by the current installation series Living Histories: Queer Views and Old Masters, it was a celebration of the LGBTQ community for the museum’s Fellows, Young Fellows, and guests. Sponsored by Trustee Tai-Heng Cheng and Cole Harrell, The Living Histories project features works by four contemporary artists, each in conversation with major Frick paintings.  With particular emphasis on issues of gender and queer identity, this type of portrayal  was typically excluded from narratives of early modern European art.

The fourth and final project, Toyin Ojih Odutola’s The Listener, was on view throughout the evening. April Kim Tonin, the Frick’s Ayesha Bulchandani Head of Education and Public Engagement, presented a short program on the work. Cocktails and hors d’oeuvres were served in the lower garden area of the museum, and short talks will be offered in the galleries throughout the evening.

Event committee: Lizzie Asher, Sharese Bullock-Bailey, Ian Ferreyra de Bone, Mercedes de Guardiola, Casey Kohlberg, Charles Myers, and Alexander Roque
