Save the Frick Collection's Music Room and Reception Hall

The Frick is a remarkable experience, a visual smorgasbord of artwork and architecture to which there are also the delightful pleasures of a music room which doubles as a lecture hall, and a research library. No matter how many times one visits the Frick, it is with renewed anticipation. Crossing the threshold of museum's entrance where inside guards direct visitors to the Reception Hall, one’s senses slowly attune to their new surroundings and to the promise of perceptual awakenings. Few perceptual transitions in the world are as satisfying as that of the Frick Reception Hall. To change it would be an egregious affront to those familiar with it and to future generations of visitors, who will ask, “What were they thinking?”
