Public art project with gary simmons

During the spring and summer of 2013, Youth Insights Leaders collaborated with artist Gary Simmons on a public art project entitled What Are You Waiting For? The project was inspired by the teens’ sense of constant waiting—whether for a train, an elevator, or a major life change such as graduation, as well as their anticipation of the opening of the new Whitney building. The project was installed from July to November on the construction fence at the site of the future Whitney.
