Community Partnerships

The Whitney’s Community Partnerships are sustained, extended relationships that bring educators and artists into an organization for extended programming and promote the Museum as an essential resource.

SENIOR COMMUNITY PARTNERSHIPS

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. Interactive slide-based lectures at senior centers and homes provide a special preview of upcoming exhibitions and a comprehensive learning experience around an array of Whitney-related topics. The Whitney’s Senior Studio Art Programs offer an accessible, collaborative environment in which seniors share in a hands-on process of creative expression.
