Education Committee

The Whitney Education Committee is an enthusiastic and inquisitive group dedicated to supporting Education programs at the Whitney for teens, students, families, adults, and visitors with disabilities. The Education Committee offers its members unique opportunities to learn more about art and artists at the Whitney. Additionally, members participate in exclusive behind-the-scenes Museum tours and are invited to observe Education programs in action. Kathryn Potts, Associate Director, Helena Rubinstein Chair of Education, has been with the Whitney's Education Department since 1997, and serves as the Education Committee liaison.

Participation begins with an annual gift of $7,500.
