The Whitney Museum of American Art

In 2015, the Whitney Museum of American Art debuted its new home in the Meatpacking District, featuring terraces that overlook the High Line.

Designed by famed architect Renzo Piano, the striking new building features 50,000 square feet of indoor galleries and 13,000 square feet of outdoor space, allowing the museum to present its most expansive display of art ever.

Founded in 1930, the Whitney was the first museum dedicated to the work of living American artists. Today, its collection includes more than 22,000 works from over 3,000 artists in the United States during the twentieth and twenty-first centuries.
