Audio Guide at Whitney Museum
Whitney Museum of American Art has introduced its first family
audio guide People, Places and Spaces. The free guide seeks to
help children think critically about art and the world around
them. Available in Spanish, the guide intends to introduce both
adults and children to the museum’s permanent collection of American
masterpieces. Families visiting the museum can use the guide to
explore the Whitney’s most acclaimed works, including Alexander
Calder’s magical Calder’s Circus, Georgia O’Keefe’s radiant Music
in Pink and Blue, and Edward Hopper’s iconic Early Sunday Morning.
It is available in Spanish and will be online in the Fall.
Located on 75th St. and Madison Ave, The Whitney Museum
of American Art was founded in 1930, and holds approximately 13,000
