Floor 3, Hess Family Theater and Hearst Artspace
Open to families with kids of all ages
Get dressed up and celebrate Halloween at the Whitney! Join Whitney Educators to create your own shadow puppet and put on a little show in one of our shadow-and-light theaters, and stop by the Hearst Artspace to make a delicious candy collage. Check out our gallery station in The Whitney’s Collection: Selections from 1900 to 1965 and make art all throughout the Museum. Don’t forget to wear your costume and strike a pose in our special Halloween photo booth!
Halloween Weekend at the Whitney is an inclusive and safe celebration for all. In that spirit, we do not allow costumes that perpetuate cultural appropriation, discrimination, or violence of any kind, including fake weapons. We invite you to be inspired by the works in our collection and check out the #IAmNotACostume campaign to learn more about choosing a respectful costume.
The Susan and John Hess Family Theater is equipped with an induction loop and infrared assistive listening system. Accessible seating is available.
