Friday nights at the Whitney Live series provide free concerts in the lower gallery and sculpture court with admission. No fear, it's pay-what-you-wish on Fridays from 6-9pm. But note, there are no special tickets or reservations. So if your summer Fridays haven't started, or don't exist, jump uptown right after work to guarantee a spot downstairs.
