Halloween Teen Night

FRI, Oct 30, 2020
4–6 pm

Halloween Teen Night is back this fall with a spooky twist: it is virtual! Join us for a vibrant celebration that highlights the art of Agnes Pelton, a visionary symbolist who depicted the spiritual reality she experienced in moments of meditative stillness. Be inspired by Pelton’s art and create biomorphic forms in an artist-led studio workshop. Plus, dance to tunes by our teen DJ, strut your costume in a virtual fashion show, and enjoy many more surprises throughout the night!


Open Studio for Teens

Open Studio For Teens returns virtually this fall! Teens are invited to a free art-making program on Zoom with Whitney educators. Each week, teens will experiment, create, and learn together with at-home art projects inspired by the Whitney’s collection. Sign up for one week or all six weeks!
