As part of our Master's series of events, the Feldbergs attended a special event at The Whitney Museum of American Art on Friday, Dec. 15th. As guests of the museum, the Feldbergs were treated to a guided tour, discussion in the museum's beautiful Trustee's room on the Whitney's unique place in New York's cultural heritage, private drinks at the Studio Cafe, and finally a night out at Bubby's Highline across the street!

Our tour was led by the incomparable Josh Lubin-Levy, one of of the museum's wonderful Joan Tisch Teaching Fellows. He led us through the relatively new exhibit on protest, currently on the 6th floor. We were introduced to fascinating artists like Carl Pope, Ad Reinhardt, and Faith Ringgold, among many others.

 Satire is an important component of the protest toolkit and one the Guerrilla Girls have clearly mastered!

After about an hour of touring, we settled into the Trustee's room to discuss the Whitney's peculiar origins, its new building, and what it means to be involved with Morgan Arenson, the museum's Director of Foundation and Governmental Relations, and Joel Snyder, manager of Membership Benefits.

Next we enjoyed some bonding time at the eighth floor studio cafe where we were treated to views of the Hudson and New Jersey skyline, and beautiful view of the highline. Finally we trekked through the cold to Bubby's where we finished the night. We look forward to a continued relationship with the Whitney and growing our cultural outreach!
