Whitney Story

Whitney Stories Video:
Carter Foster
Apr 29, 2014

The Whitney's works on paper study center allows scholars and students unprecedented access to the Museum's vast array of twentieth and twenty-first century American drawings. In this Whitney Stories video, originally published in April 2014, Carter Foster, Steven and Ann Ames Curator of Drawing, introduces plans for the space and describes the characteristics that make drawings a uniquely intimate form.

This video is part of an ongoing series which sheds light on the Whitney’s plans through conversations with artists, Whitney staff, and integral members of the construction team—view more Whitney Stories videos below.
