Spotlight tours offer an opportunity to slow down and look closely at select highlights from Human Interest: Portraits from the Whitney’s Collection. Guided by a Museum docent, participants are encouraged to study and discuss works together. Each forty-five minute session either focuses on a single work of art, or explores a connection between two works. This session looks at Painting, Number Five (1914–15) by Marsden Hartley.
