Independent Study Program at the Roy Lichtenstein Studio

Press log in Register

The Whitney Museum of American Art has completed a full renovation of artist Roy Lichtenstein’s former home and studio at 741/745 Washington Street in Greenwich Village, now the permanent space for its renowned Independent Study Program (ISP). 

The ISP—a core component of the Whitney’s role as a champion of American art and artists since 1968—has instructed more than two generations of artists, curators, art historians, and critics, providing participants with the instruction, space and support needed to pursue their artistic endeavors. Alumni of the program include artists Jennifer Allora, Gregg Bordowitz, Tony Cokes, Danielle Dean, Mark Dion, Andrea Fraser, LaToya Ruby Frazier, Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Renée Green, Jenny Holzer, Emily Jacir, Glenn Ligon, Rirkrit Tiravanija, and Julian Schnabel; critics and art historians Huey Copeland, Miwon Kwon, Pamela M. Lee, and Roberta Smith; and curators Carlos Basualdo, Naomi Beckwith, and Sheena Wagstaff, among many others.
