Join us for a free tour in American Sign Language of American Legends, without voice interpretation. The tour begins at 7 pm, with a free pre-tour reception from 6–7 pm.
American Legends: From Calder to O’Keeffe showcases the Whitney’s deep holdings of artwork from the first half of the twentieth century by the eighteen leading artists: Oscar Bluemner, Charles Burchfield, Paul Cadmus, Alexander Calder, Joseph Cornell, Ralston Crawford, Stuart Davis, Arthur Dove, Charles Demuth, Marsden Hartley, Edward Hopper, Gaston Lachaise, Jacob Lawrence, John Marin, Reginald Marsh, Elie Nadelman, Georgia O’Keeffe, and Joseph Stella. Organized as concentrated one-and two-artist presentations, each gallery will serve as an interdisciplinary, small-scale retrospective. Rotations of art and of artists will be made during the exhibition’s yearlong duration.
Please note: we regret that complimentary tickets will no longer be available for ASL students. Museum staff/interpreters will not be able to sign student assignments.
Admission to tour and reception is free. Registration is required; RSVP to email@example.com. Please bypass the admissions line and pick up your tickets at the check-in location in the Museum lobby.
