NEW YORK, NY.- The Frick Collection welcomes 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.”

Chapman comes to the Frick from The Metropolitan Opera, where she was Director of Major Gifts for nearly nine years. Previously she served as Director of Development and Director of the Women’s Committee at the Central Park Conservancy and Executive Director at Save Venice, Inc.

Earlier experience in the fine arts will stand her in good stead at the Frick. After earning a B.A. at Harvard, where she was Editor-in-Chief of The Harvard Art Journal, she pursued graduate work at the Institute of Fine Arts and received her MBA at the Leonard N. Stern School of Business, New York University. Chapman also spent several years as an Assistant Vice President and Specialist in Old Master Drawings at Christie’s Inc., New York.

Chapman has volunteered at various New York institutions, including The Chapin School, where she acted as cochairman of the Alumnae Committee for the “Together We Will” campaign. She also co-chaired the Young Associates of The Morgan Library (1996–2003). She is the Vice President of the Alumnae Board of The Chapin School and Secretary of the Board of Save Venice, Inc.
