Exhibition Tour and Artmaking at the Whitney
When the days are cold and the streets are grey, the Whitney offers a bright, warm oasis overlooking the Hudson River. Come prepared to learn about art, and then create it yourself, with this tour and hands-on artmaking workshop. The afternoon will begin with an hour-long guided tour of Where We Are: Selections from the Whitney’s Collection, 1900-1960. Full of Village artists and New York scenery, the exhibition traces how artists have approached the relationships, institutions, and activities that shape our lives. Organized around five themes — family and community, work, home, the spiritual, and the nation — a central aim of the exhibition is to honor each artist’s efforts to create a vision of American life. Then, enter the Whitney’s studio for an hour-long artmaking experience, exploring the exhibition’s themes for ourselves.
