What we do…

The Frick Estate Lectures is a high-quality, year-round program of lectures presented in collaboration with and for the benefit of the Nassau County Museum of Arts, located in Roslyn on Long Island, New York. The non-credit courses cover art, history, literature, philosophy, music and current affairs – broadly defined as the “cultural and liberal arts” – rather than “vocational” or “how-to” subjects. The program is designed to offer participants fulfillment through a rich and diverse learning experience.
