The Laurie M. Tisch Education Center
DateDecember 1, 2011
Just as education is a central part of the Whitney’s mission, the Laurie M. Tisch Education Center will be a hub of activity in the new building downtown. Unlike many museums in the city, where education facilities are relegated to the basement or off-site, the Laurie M. Tisch Education Center will be at the Museum’s heart as it provides o dynamic interface between the public entrance and the Whitney’s galleries. Its location on the second floor will enable program participants to move easily from exhibitions into the Education Center, creating opportunities for Whitney educators to extend their gallery-based teaching with artmaking activities, demonstrations, and in-depth study and discussion.
