The Artists Council is a patron group comprised of young collectors who share a passion for supporting the Whitney and its commitment to working with living artists. Throughout the year, Artists Council members have the unique opportunity to engage with Whitney artists, often before their work is known to the broader contemporary art world. With the guidance of associate curator, Jane Panetta, the group gains access to cutting-edge artists’ studios, private collections, and much more. Jane possesses a vast knowledge of contemporary art history and offers a rich understanding of the art of our time. A member of the Whitney curatorial staff since 2010, her recent exhibitions include Signs and Symbols (co-organized with Donna De Salvo,) Mirror Cells (co-organized with Christopher Y. Lew,) and Fast Forward: Painting from the 1980s. Jane was also part of the curatorial team for the Whitney’s inaugural exhibition, America is Hard to See.
Participation begins with an annual gift of $5,000.
