KNOW YOUR EXPERIENCE
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, in 1929.
The museum was located in the Upper East Side for 50 years before moving to its current location, in the heart of the Meatpacking district in Manhattan. 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.
Explore the breadth and depth of a collection that has helped define what is innovative and influential in American art since the beginning of the twentieth century. The permanent collection at the Whitney consists of works by artists such as Louise Bourgeois, Man Ray, Jasper Johns and Andy Warhol. You should definitely check out pieces such as Study for Nighthawks by Edward Hopper, Four Darks in Red by Mark Rothko and Number 27, 1950 by Jackson Pollock.
