The Whitney Contemporaries is a dynamic group of art enthusiasts and collectors, ages twenty-one to forty.
Members choose from two levels of support. Contemporaries ($750 for two) can access a robust schedule of events including artist studio visits, neighborhood gallery walks, opening cocktail receptions for major Whitney exhibitions, and VIP art fair passes. Contemporaries Patrons ($1,250 for two) enjoy additional opportunities such as private collection visits, summer day trips to regional art destinations, and insider experiences with artists, curators, and tastemakers.
