In this video The Frick Collection director Ian Wardropper describes an inspirational childhood moment at Museo Nacional del Prado when he realized not just the power of art, but the power of museums to shape how we think about that art. It’s part of our Centennial Conversations series, in which we asked some museum directors to tell us about their formative experiences in art museums, in honor of AAMD’s 100th anniversary.
