Whitney Says "S.O.S."

Vanderbilt. Whitney. Any association with those names is bound to gain one a bit of extra attention in New York. Enter the 90-year art studio-cum-national historic landmark of Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney. Sitting behind the New York Studio School of Drawing, Painting and Sculpture (which once housed the Whitney Museum of American Art) the crumbling space is in gross need of conservation. Not to fear: a $50K grant is on the way with more coming down the pipe. [NYT]
