Michelle Obama Whitney

Michelle Obama, the First Lady Of The United States (a.k.a. FLOTUS), will be in New York this morning for the opening ceremony of the new Whitney Museum. You might want to reconsider taking that cab.

The First Lady is attending the ribbon cutting ceremony and dedication of the new museum of American Art. She will also be discussing the large impact arts and culture have on young people in America. Michelle Obama is widely known to be a major and an active advocate for education and reaching out to the younger “millennial” generation. On her Twitter account (@FLOTUS), the First Lady will also be celebrating “students working to #ReachHigher” by encouraging everyone to wear their college shirt this Friday on May 1st.

For those of you who cannot attend The Whitney Museum opening inauguration to watch First Lady Michelle Obama talk, there is a live webcast through the Whitney Museum website. The revamped Whitney Museum, a more than 200,000 square foot building designed by Renzo Piano, is now located in the Meatpacking District at 99 Gansevoort Street. It will be open to the public tomorrow on May 1st. Click through for a first look at the space! More>>
