On May 11, New York City's Whitney Studio, now part of the New York Studio School, launched a new tour program that will allow visitors to see the historic space that was not only once home to the Whitney Museum of Art, but also the workspace of Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney and many more artists.
The National Trust has worked extensively with the New York Studio School on the interpretation of the space for the free, public tours. The Trust also provided grant support for the restoration of the former hay loft that has been a studio, salon, and exhibit space as Whitney expanded her footprint in Greenwich Village to eventually include nine buildings along 8th Avenue as part of the first Whitney Museum of Art in 1931.
We are thrilled that more people can see the National Treasure up close with the launch of the tour program next month! Book your chance to see the historic spaces before they fill up!
