The Whitney Museum of American Art has received a $2 million (approx. £1.3m) gift from the Steven & Alexandra Cohen Foundation, to go towards the support of the museum’s education programmes over the next five years.

The Cohen Foundation, launched in 2001, provides funds to organisations and programmes that address children’s health, education, veterans, and the arts. In the past decade, the foundation worked with the Whitney as a sponsor for several exhibitions, including the Jeff Koons retrospective in 2014.
