  4. Tom Otterness, Life Underground (2001) from Whitney Museum of American Art on Vimeo.

    Artist Tom Otterness talks about Life Underground, his sculpture installation at the Fourteenth Street and Eighth Avenue subway station, which will serve as the transportation hub to the Whitney’s new building, opening downtown in 2015.

    This video is the first in a series focusing on the intersection of art and place in the Museum’s future neighborhood. Read more about the project in Whitney Stories.

  5. Teens from the Whitney’s Youth Insights program worked with artist Gary Simmons to collect responses to the question, “What are you waiting for?” from their classmates and the larger community. The handwritten scraps of paper were then photographed, printed, and wheatpasted onto a wall, creating a layered, complex, and sometimes contradictory collection of voices and opinions.

    The project is on view twenty-four hours a day, at the corner of Gansevoort and Washington Streets, next to the Whitney’s new building.

  6. We got a behind-the-scenes look at sculptor Tom Otterness’s Brooklyn studio—and artistic process—during a visit this morning with third graders from Chelsea Preparatory P.S. 33. Read some tidbits from the visit and see more photos by searching #Otterness on Twitter.

  10. In conjunction with our Richard Artschwager retrospective opening this Thursday, a series of the artist’s blps are being installed along and on the horizon of the High Line, near the future home of the Whitney, as well as on the Museum’s current building uptown.
Artschwager first created his blps—a word coined by the artist and pronounced, “blips”—in the late 1960s. This installation consists of black lozenge-shaped marks meant to inspire focused looking and draw our attention to the places and things around us that often go unnoticed.
