Whitney Family Programs has an intriguing offering for parents with babies 0-18 months--Stroller Tours . Whitney Teaching Fellows, PhD candidates in art history, are leading engaging tours of current exhibitions for new moms and dads when the Museum is closed to the public. Crying babies are welcome!

LEGACY: THE EMILY FISHER LANDAU COLLECTION: In May 2010, longtime Whitney trustee Emily Fisher Landau made a promised gift to the Museum of more than 350 works of art, including works from the Fisher Landau Center for Art. This landmark pledge – an abiding dream of Ms. Fisher Landau and the Whitney’s Chairman Emeritus Leonard A. Lauder – comprises works by nearly one hundred key figures in American art.

GLENN LIGON: AMERICA: This first comprehensive mid-career retrospective of New York–based artist Glenn Ligon surveys twenty-five years of his art, with roughly one hundred works, including paintings, prints, photographs, drawings, video, and sculptural installations, as well as Ligon’s striking recent neon reliefs.
