For the first time in its history, the Whitney Museum has a dedicated space for education with the opening of the Laurie M. Tisch Education Center. Centrally located on the Museum’s Third Floor and adjacent to the Susan and John Hess Family Theater, the Education Center provides opportunities for museum educators to work in innovative ways, offering audiences drop-in programming, hands-on learning, and in-depth and interdisciplinary programming. The Laurie M. Tisch Education Center—comprising the Hearst Artspace that features art-making activities for all ages; a Seminar Room with state-of-the-art audio and visual capabilities; and offices for staff—is a hub where visitors can engage with artists and enliven and enrich their museum experience.
