Whitman College Art Department

New York Trip

During the senior year art majors participate in a unique year-long seminar which, in addition to research, production and critiques, includes a faculty-led fieldtrip to New York City. Visiting the galleries and museums in the world capital of contemporary art, students are able to position their endeavors within a cultural and historic framework. Their year culminates in a thesis exhibition of an original body of work produced over their two final semesters.

Past trips have included visits to:

The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Whitney Museum of American Art, The Guggenheim, The Museum of Modern Art, MoMA PS1, The Neue Galerie, Dia: Beacon, Pace Prints, Postmasters Gallery, and The Center for Book Arts.
