Frick Collection Names Tia Chapman New Deputy Director for External Affairs
The Frick Collection is pleased to welcome Tia F. Chapman as its new Deputy Director for External Affairs. Taking up the post on July 15, 2013, Chapman will oversee the Development Department in a wide range of fundraising and outreach initiatives.
Among the areas to be under her leadership are major and individual giving, annual campaigns, planned giving, foundation and government grants, corporate sponsorship, membership, special events, external affairs publications, and media relations and marketing.
Comments Director Ian Wardropper, "We welcome Tia Chapman to our ranks at an auspicious time for the institution. This fall, we host Vermeer, Rembrandt, and Hals: Masterpieces of Dutch Painting from Mauritshuis. In 2014, our beautiful beaux-arts mansion, the former home of Henry Clay Frick, celebrates its Centennial. The institution has a dedicated board led by a dynamic Chairman, Margot Bogert, and our membership rolls are at their highest in the Frick's history. Public engagement is indicated by record-breaking attendance at the museum and the popularity of our varied education programs, while we note ever-increasing usership at the Frick Art Reference Library. Tia Chapman is a well-respected colleague in cultural fundraising, and we anticipate that she will bring to the Frick a fresh and rich perspective when she joins us this summer."
