The Whitney Museum

After nearly 50 years on the Upper East Side, the Whitney Museum of American Art reopened its doors in the Meatpacking District in mid 2015. The pioneering contemporary art museum is now a must-visit on the museum circuit, and thanks to the building’s designer Renzo Piano, the exterior (and its permeable glass walls) is as much a work of art as the pieces that line the eight floors. The museum houses an expertly curated selection of 20th- and 21st-century American art by more than 3,000 iconic artists, including Edward Hopper, Jackson Pollock, Cindy Sherman and Mark Rothko. The expanded space has also made way for larger works, such as Michael Heizer’s Actual Size: Munich Rotary.
