New York City Bus Trip

Join Creative York for our bus trip to New York City to visit the Whitney Museum of Art to see the Biennial exhibition and where our insider tour guide, Maggie Moran, former Gallery Director of YorkArts (Creative York), will lead us through several galleries located in the Chelsea art district.

Discover the art of our times in Whitney Biennial 2024: Even Better Than the Real Thing. The seventy-one artists and collectives in the latest chapter of the exhibition follow in the footsteps of hundreds of Biennial artists before them to interpret our current landscape and tell stories, spark discussion, and comment on issues across a variety of media and disciplines.

The Whitney is in the Meatpacking District, a twenty-square-block neighborhood with a bustling community of artists, galleries, educators, entrepreneurs, and residents. The museum is steps from the High Line and a short walk from Greenwich Village, where the Museum was founded by Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney in 1930.

Lunch and shopping on your own in the Chelsea market or other locations as you see fit. Reservations are encouraged if you are looking to eat at a specific place. A list of local restaurants and lunch options will be provided.

About the Whitney Museum of Art:

As the preeminent institution devoted to the art of the United States, the Whitney Museum of American Art presents the full range of twentieth century and contemporary American art, with a special focus on works by living artists. The Whitney is dedicated to collecting, preserving, interpreting, and exhibiting American art, and its collection—arguably the finest holdings of twentieth-century American art in the world—is the Museum’s key resource. The Museum’s flagship exhibition, the Biennial, is the country’s leading survey of the most recent developments in American art.

Designed by architect Renzo Piano and situated between the High Line and the Hudson River, the Whitney’s current building vastly increases the Museum’s exhibition and programming space, providing the most expansive view ever of its unsurpassed collection of modern and contemporary American art.

Tickets are limited and reserved on a first-come first-serve basis.
