Slide Talks

These interactive slide-based lectures at senior centers and homes offer participants a special preview of upcoming exhibitions and a comprehensive learning experience around an array of Whitney-related topics, while also providing the opportunity to reach seniors unable to travel to the Museum. For each Slide Talk, a Whitney educator provides an illustrated thematic overview of selected works of art, placing the works in their art historical context, and engaging seniors in a dialogue about the lecture topic.
