CUNY BA Event: 2022 Whitney Biennial Tour

CUNYBA Event: 2022 Whitney Biennial Tour

In celebration of the 50th anniversary of the CUNY Baccalaureate for Unique and Interdisciplinary Studies (CUNY BA) program invited some CUNYBA students and alumni for a tour of the 2022 Whitney Biennial. The tour was led by Joseph Henry, CUNY BA Graduate Fellow, and Joan Tisch Teaching Fellow at the Whitney Museum.

A highly anticipated museum event since 1932, the Whitney Biennial showcases the newest voices in contemporary art and poses pressing questions about American culture, politics, and identity. Joseph guided each tour around the Biennial’s two floors, a thoughtful and exciting outing for the CUNY BA community!
