Verbal and Touch Tour @ Whitney Museum

October 19 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

Verbal Description and Touch Tour: WHERE WE ARE
Selections from the Whitney’s Collection, 1900–1960

At a time when debate continues over what it means to be American, Where We Are proposes a framework of everyday relationships, institutions, and activities that form an individual’s sense of self. The exhibition focuses on works from the Whitney’s collection made between 1900 and 1960, a tumultuous period in the history of the United States when life in the country changed drastically due to war, economic collapse, and demands for civil rights. Artists responded in complex and diverse ways, and this tour will examine their efforts to put forward new ways of presenting the self and American life.

Space is limited and reservations are required. Please call
