The semi-annual Breakfast with the Director offers a rare opportunity to join Adam D. Weinberg, the Whitney’s Alice Pratt Brown Director, for an engaging conversation with an art world insider. This summer’s edition will feature a conversation with Dana Miller, Curator of the Permanent Collection, and Peter Stevens, Executive Director, David Smith Estate.
The Whitney’s inaugural exhibition, America Is Hard to See, includes four sculptures by the celebrated sculptor David Smith (1906–1965). These works, from the lyrical Hudson River Landscape (1951) to the monumental Cubi XXI (1964), showcase Smith’s diverse approaches to form and material and his rich visual vocabulary. The display in adjacent indoor and outdoor galleries emphasizes the dynamic relationship between works of art and the surrounding context.
Join us for a light breakfast at 8:30 am followed by the conversation at 9.
