Spotlight Tours: Collected by Thea Westreich Wagner and Ethan Wagner and The Whitney’s Collection

Thurs, Feb 18, 2016
6:30–7:30 pm

Floors Six and Seven

Patron, Circle, Fellow, and Sponsor members

Collected by Thea Westreich Wagner and Ethan Wagner presents a selection from Westreich Wagner and Wagner’s recent gifts of art to the Whitney and the Centre Pompidou. The exhibition is organized as a series of thematic rooms that explore such ideas as the darker side of advertising, street style and the punk aesthetic, and the artist as celebrity. Each tour, led by a Whitney teaching fellow, explores the exhibition in conjunction with The Whitney’s Collection, a presentation of works from the Museum’s holdings that examines the complexity of American art and identity in the early and mid-twentieth century.

Active members at the Patron, Circle, Fellow, and Sponsor level are invited to register for one of two options:

Thursday, February 18

This program will also be offered on March 3
