John Stanley, the TMA’s Interim Executive Director and former C.O.O. for the Whitney Museum of American Art, explores the history of a decade’s long effort to expand the Whitney’s New York City Upper East Side Marcel Breuer designed building.  Through many failed attempts the process led to relocating the museum entirely to a new Renzo Piano designed building in the city’s Meat Packing District.  The talk will reveal an insider’s look at how such a bespoke building comes into being from idea to design to realization.
