Library Fellows

The Library Fellows explore the relationship between contemporary American artists and the published materials that document and enhance understanding of their work. With a focus on the Whitney’s exhibition program and permanent collection, this group provides vital support to the Museum Library's operations and establishes funds to enhance its Special Collections and archives.

Participation begins with an annual gift of $3,000.
