Apply for YI Artists
Applications due Monday, January 31 at 11:59 pm.
Youth Insights (YI) Artists is a free, after-school program open to NYC high school students in grades 9-12. Each semester, YI brings teens together with contemporary artists and Museum staff, providing opportunities to work collaboratively, discuss art critically, think creatively, and create art inspired by this exchange. Learn new art techniques that culminate in a final exhibition!
Teens are invited this fall to Open Studio for Teens, a free art-making program on select Fridays. Experiment, create, and learn techniques with art projects inspired by the Whitney’s exhibitions and collection.
Teens must present proof of vaccination upon arrival at the Museum in accordance with New York City requirements. Face coverings are required at all times.
Proof of vaccination may include a CDC Vaccination Card (or photo), NYC COVID Safe app, New York State Excelsior Pass, NYC Vaccination Record, or an official immunization record from outside New York City or the United States.
