There Are Artists Among Us Tote
100% cotton. 18" x 14". 3.5" gusset, 11" handles.
The Whitney Museum of American was borne out of sculptor Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney's advocacy on behalf of living American artists. At the beginning of the twentieth century, unknown artists found it nearly impossible to exhibit or sell their work as patrons were focused on art being created by known artists in Europe. Recognizing the obstacles these artists faced, Mrs. Whitney began purchasing and showing their work, thereby becoming the leading patron of American art from 1907 until her death in 1942.

Inspired by Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney's spirit of philanthropy toward unknown artists, this spacious tote reminds us that there are, indeed, artists among us.
