There are only two episodes left of "Cocktails with a Curator." Join us for happy hour as a Frick curator (remotely) offers insights on a work from the collection with a complementary cocktail.

Tune in at 5:00 p.m. EDT on Fridays, July 9 and 16, at to stream the final episodes.

This week, join Assistant Curator of Sculpture Giulio Dalvit for a discussion of Andrea del Verrocchio’s “Bust of a Woman,” one of three marble sculptures welcoming visitors on the third floor of Frick Madison. This bust of an unknown sitter showcases Verrocchio’s command of the medium, from the sitter’s look of surprise and the subtle movement of her sleeves to the intricately carved clasp of her garment and the tight curls in her hair. This week’s complementary cocktail is Alchermes—a quintessentially Florentine liqueur that will appeal to viewers with a sweet tooth—or a Shirley Temple mocktail.

Audiences under 21 are encouraged to join with a non-alcoholic drink.
