Shantell Martin’s signature black and white drawings inspire and innovate, while exploring themes such as intersectionality, identity, and play. Her compositions are a cultural facilitator for forming new connections between fine art, education, design, and philosophy.
A Pioneer of American Art
Founded in 1930, the Whitney Museum of American Art is the first museum dedicated to the work of living American artists - collecting, preserving, interpreting, and exhibiting twentieth-century and contemporary American art. Innovation has been the hallmark of the museum since its beginnings - The Museum’s flagship exhibition, the Biennial, is the country’s leading survey of the most recent developments in American art.
