The Whitney’s Community Programs build sustained connections that go beyond the single museum visit, bringing art, ideas, and dialogue to classrooms, senior centers, and community-based organizations around the city.
An Etiology of Omission: Disability In and Out of Protest Art
SAT, Oct 28, 2017
An Incomplete History of Protest: Selections from the Whitney’s Collection, 1940—2017 invites us to consider what is missing, and why. This program explores disability as a political and aesthetic category in artists’ reckoning with the most pressing issues of their day.
This event is free. Registration is required.
We partner with community-based senior organizations to create customized programs that challenge seniors to actively engage with the Whitney’s collection and exhibitions, share ideas, and relate what they learn to their own lives and experiences.
