  • Our Mission

    The Frick Estate Lectures was established in 2019 to provide mature adults with outstanding enrichment in the liberal arts and sciences. These lectures are intended to appeal to those who appreciate carefully curated and thoughtfully presented courses delivered by experts in the various fields of literature, history, music, art, philosophy, economics, psychology, and political science. The Frick Estate Lectures is incorporated under its own name and was designed to cooperate with and support its venue at the Nassau County Museum of Art.

  • What we do

    The Frick Estate Lectures provides personal enrichment for mature adults who appreciate literature, art, music, history, philosophy, economics, psychology, and politics science. Our liberal arts disciplines deliberately exclude vocational or “how-to” subjects. These courses cater to all who are interested in non-credit enrichment taught year-round by outstanding experts in their fields. Students who attend the lectures enjoy an aesthetic experience at our elegant venue and a diverse learning opportunity that invigorates and
    inspires them.
