the Whitney

From presenting emerging artists to reevaluating the iconic narratives in American art, everything you experience at the Whitney is made possible through the generosity of individuals, corporations, and foundations.


With the help of our members, the Whitney has supported the careers of living American artists, long before they have received history’s stamp of approval. When you become a member, you’ll continue to make American art matter, as well as enable the Whitney to continue making bold, forward-thinking choices in exhibiting the work of new artists.
