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.
From interactive slide-based lectures to studio art courses, the Whitney’s center-based programs offer inroads to the diversity and richness of American art and culture.
Extending the Whitney walls to homebound seniors, the Museum’s Teleconference Courses are an illustrated, multi-part lecture series organized through Meals on Wheels.
