Community

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.


The Whitney’s Education department has been engaged in research, outreach, and an inclusive planning process in our new neighborhood.
