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.
