Art As Experience

In conjunction with the opening of the Laurie M. Tisch Education Center, the Whitney Education Department is inaugurating new and expanded programming designed to engage diverse audiences. A touchstone for the development of Whitney Education in our new location is the American philosopher and educator John Dewey (1859–1952) and his classic 1934 text Art as Experience.

99 Objects is a series of in-gallery programs each focused on a single work of art from the Whitney’s collection. Programs take place daily.
