It’s Whitney Biennial time! The walls of the Whitney are filled with interesting, beautiful, thought provoking works that make a great outing with kids. The idea of the Biennial is that all of the works have been made within the last 2 years, so they’re “hot off the presses!” Different textures and techniques make it an engaging time–we loved the tent made of lace and beaded curtain hung with ordinary objects by Joel Otterson as well as an impressive room installation that reflects the outside architecture and cityscape by Zoe Leonard.
On upcoming Saturdays, kids have the added opportunity to meet some of the artists in their Family Programs. The Whitney is slated to move downtown in 2015 so this is the last Biennial in its current home, and not to be missed. Pop over to the park afterwards for a really “New York” day! Enjoy!
