Whitney Contemporaries

The Whitney Contemporaries is a dynamic group of art enthusiasts, supporters, and advocates, ages twenty-one to forty.

Members choose from two levels of support. Contemporaries ($750 for two) can access artist studio visits as well as talks and discussions with Whitney curatorial staff. Contemporaries Patrons ($1,250 for two) enjoy additional opportunities such as private collection visits, and insider experiences with artists, curators, and tastemakers.

To safeguard the well-being of members, artists, and staff, our robust schedule of events has moved online for the time being.
