We’ve missed the Whitney and their amazing family programming this winter. Lucky for us, the new Whitney opens this weekend in the Meatpacking district of Manhattan and will kick off their educational programming with an open studio for kids. May’s studios (May 3, 9, 10, 17, 30, and 31, 2015 from 10:30am-3pm) are inspired by the exhibit America is Hard to See, a new curation from the museum’s permanent collection offering a fresh perspective on the themes and ideas that have inspired American artists over the past century. The Whitney Kids Opening celebration, free with admission to the museum, will take place on May 16, 2015, from 2-4pm, and include a tour, an art-making workshop, and a Whitney Kids Activity Guide.
The Whitney Museum of American Art is located at 99 Gansevoort Street in New York City. Closed Tuesdays. Admission is $22 for adults and free for children under 18.
