    The Met to Enable Frick Collection to Use Breuer Building During Its 2020 Renovation

    The Met Breuer building The Metropolitan Museum of Art and The Frick Collection announced that they are in discussions to bring the Frick's program temporarily to the Whitney Museum of American Art's Breuer building while the Frick's buildings undergo upgrade and renovation. The Met began programming the Marcel Breuer-designed building on Madison Avenue in 2016, through an arrangement with the Whitney that began after the Whitney moved to its current location in downtown Manhattan in 2015.

Collaborating with The Met on a temporary initiative at the Breuer building would enable us to do just that, a mere five blocks away, during a time when the Frick would otherwise need to be closed completely to the public."
