why you shouldn’t miss this

The Whitney Museum was established in 1931 as a museum dedicated exclusively to American art, with a special focus on living artists. Gertrude Whitney, of the famed Vanderbilt family and the namesake of the institution, was a well-regarded sculptor and a serious art collector as well. She had collected over 700 works of art and offered 500 of them to the Museum of Modern Art. Upon being declined the offer due to a slight preference for European Modern Art, Gertrude Whitney decided to start her own museum, exclusively for American art.

The museum was located in the Upper East Side for 50 years before moving to its current location. The building, spread over 220,000 square feet and distributed through 9 floors, was designed by the renowned Italian architect Renzo Piano and is a work of art in itself. The museum consists of exhibition spaces, an education center, a reading room, a theater and a conservation lab.
