Description

The Whitney museum focuses on American art from the 20th and 21st centuries, and the institute prides itself on exhibiting the work of living artists. The eclectic collection is a must-see for contemporary art lovers, and the museum’s international biennial exhibition has long been a venue for emerging and under represented artists. The Whitney’s permanent collection holds more than 18,000 pieces by artists including Louise Bourgeois, Robert Rauschenberg, Cindy Sherman, and Mark Rothko. The current 7-story museum is located on Madison Avenue in the Upper East Side, but construction is underway for a new main building in the Meatpacking District of Manhattan. The building will mark the southern entrance of the High Line park, and construction is expected to be complete by 2015.
