On March 28, 2011, YI participants had the opportunity to meet artist Glenn Ligon, whose exhibition, Glenn Ligon: AMERICA, opened this spring at the Whitney. While taking YI teens through the exhibition, Ligon spoke about his upbringing, discussed his artistic process, and answered questions about what he was doing next. For more insights on YI’s afternoon with Glenn Ligon, read the Whit blog post. To see more work by Glenn Ligon visit the Whitney’s online collection.
