The Library Fellows explore the relationship between contemporary American artists and the published materials that document and enhance understanding of their work. With a focus on the Whitney’s exhibition program and permanent collection, this group provides vital support to the operations of the Museum’s Frances Mulhall Achilles Library and establishes funds to enhance its Special Collections.

Participation begins with an annual gift of $2,500.
