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 contemporary art world. With the guidance of Carter Foster, Curator of Drawings, the group gains access to cutting-edge artists’ studios. Carter brings his vast knowledge of American art providing a historical and cultural context around the contemporary. A Whitney Curator since 2004, his recent exhibitions include, Full House: Views of the Whitney’s Collection at 75, Neither New nor Correct: New Work by Mark Bradford, Claes Oldenburg: Early Sculpture, Drawings, and Happenings Films, Roni Horn aka Roni Horn.
Participation begins with an annual gift of $5,000.
