Art As Experience

In conjunction with the opening of the Laurie M. Tisch Education Center, the Whitney Education Department is inaugurating new and expanded programming designed to engage diverse audiences. A touchstone for the development of Whitney Education in our new location is the American philosopher and educator John Dewey (1859–1952) and his classic 1934 text Art as Experience.

The Laurie M. Tisch Education Center

For the first time in its history, the Whitney Museum has a dedicated space for education with the opening of the Laurie M. Tisch Education Center. Centrally located on the Museum’s Third Floor and adjacent to the Susan and John Hess Family Theater, the Education Center provides opportunities for museum educators to work in innovative ways, offering audiences drop-in programming, hands-on learning, and in-depth and interdisciplinary programming. The Laurie M. Tisch Education Center is a hub where visitors can engage with artists and enliven and enrich their museum experience.
