Member Nights

Reimagine what the Whitney can be with an after-hours celebration that’s just for Members.

At Member Nights, you can enjoy in-depth access to our exhibitions and unique chances to get creative, inspired by works on view. Occurring about six times per year, your Member Nights are an ongoing Members-only opportunity to experience the galleries in a new light, connect with fellow art lovers, and soak up the atmosphere. While there is no right way to explore the Museum throughout the evening, read on to learn more about some of our favorite experiences. 

All Members are invited to these special evenings and the invitation is for two. Not a Member? Join online or call (212) 570-3641.

Take a Tour

Gain fresh perspectives with fellow art enthusiasts. Join a Whitney educator for a fifteen-minute mini tour discussing masterpieces from the Whitney’s collection or works by groundbreaking contemporary artists on view.

Get Creative

Every Member Night has new drop-in artmaking opportunities to create and collaborate, inspired by current exhibitions. Guided by our Teaching Artists, activities are beginner-friendly for guests to participate regardless of artistic experience. Past favorites include: figure drawing, collage, button making, and more.

Savor the Evening

Enjoy everything the Museum has to offer at your leisure—share new experiences with other Members, sway to music, or buy a cocktail and step out onto our terraces with stunning skyline views.

As we approach the holiday season, please know we are expecting to be busier than usual with the potential for long entry lines. Please arrive up to 15 minutes before your ticketed time to allow sufficient time for entry, including bag checks and other security measures. We kindly ask at this time that if it is possible to leave strollers and large bags at home please do so. We look forward to welcoming you for your visit.
