I'm always amazed to think that this museum was once a family's private home, complete with its world-class art collection. Everywhere you look you're seeing a view filled with objects that were carefully selected and displayed. The Frick Collection is one of NYC's best cold weather sketch spots. Join us there for a day of sketching this coming Saturday.
