Westside Exposure: Whitney Staff Art Show 2019

Jul 12–Aug 15, 2019

Westbeth Gallery, 55 Bethune Street

From its origins in Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney’s Greenwich Village studio in 1914 to its relocation to the Meatpacking District in 2015, the Whitney Museum of American Art has always sought to support living artists at critical moments in their careers. Many of the Museum’s staff members, who make the Museum’s exhibitions, programs, publications, and day-to-day operations possible, are artists themselves. 

For the fourth time in its history, the Whitney’s Staff Art Show will be held in a public space, offering staff an opportunity to share their work and deepen connections with one another as well as a wider audience. This year’s exhibition will include the work of over ninety artists, presenting a wide range of media and content, and reflecting the diversity of thought and artistic practice among the Whitney’s staff.

Opening Reception
July 17, 6–8 pm

Gallery Hours
Wednesday–Sunday, 1–6 pm
