Program Description

"These interactive slide-based lectures at senior centers and homes offer participants a special preview of upcoming exhibitions and a comprehensive learning experience around an array of Whitney-related topics, while also providing the opportunity to reach seniors unable to travel to the Museum. For each Slide Talk, a Whitney educator provides an illustrated thematic overview of selected works of art, placing the works in their art historical context, and engaging seniors in a dialogue about the lecture topic."

The "Whitney Museum Slide Talks" senior arts program includes a preview of upcoming Whitney Museum exhibitions and provides seniors with an alternative learning activity experience.

A museum educator provides seniors with an illustration of works of art, placing them in historical context, and engages seniors in a dialogue about the topic.

The "Whitney Museum" partners with community-based senior organizations to create customized senior arts programs. The goal is to challenge seniors to actively engage with the Whitney's collection and exhibitions, share ideas, and relate what they learn to their own lives and experiences.
