The Frick Collection annual and highly anticipated Autumn Dinner 2021 made a glorious return this week. As the first in person event in over a year New York’s stylish society of longtime patrons glamorously celebrated the institution and its enduring legacy. The black-tie event is very festive and it raised vital funds to support the many important activities of the museum and Frick Art Reference Library, including conservation, education programs, special exhibitions, and more.

This year’s event honored Ronald S. Lauder, a loyal friend and longtime supporter of the institution. A Fellow of the Frick for over a decade, he has supported library and museum projects including the exhibition Luigi Valadier: Splendor in Eighteenth-Century Rome (2018–19).

Mr. Lauder, who serves as chairman of Clinique Laboratories and on the Board of Directors of the Estée Lauder Companies, is a dedicated champion of the arts and of numerous other philanthropic causes. He is Chairperson of the Board Emeritus of the Jewish National Fund, chairman of the Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial Foundation, and president of the World Jewish Congress and The Ronald S. Lauder Foundation, which fosters Jewish education in Eastern and Central Europe.

He is also co-founder of the Alzheimer’s Drug Discovery Foundation. A noted collector himself, he is a leading figure in the New York City arts scene, serving as honorary chairman of the Museum of Modern Art and co-founder and president of the Neue Galerie New York.

Later in the evening Anna-Maria and Stephen Kellen Director Ian Wardropper toasted Lauder for his remarkable contributions to the art world and for his longstanding dedication to the Frick.
