Chelsea Preparatory Public School 33

Our partnership with Chelsea Preparatory Public School 33 started in spring 2009 when we began to think about engaging communities and building relationships with schools in the downtown area. The Chelsea Prep community often visits the Whitney, and the Museum building is featured in a mural at PS 33. Recent projects with PS 33 include multi-part programming for the entire second grade as well as Guided Visits and workshops for other students.
