THE WHITNEY IS CLOSED IN PREPARATION FOR THE OPENING OF OUR NEW BUILDING in spring 2015


Designed by architect Renzo Piano and situated between the High Line and the Hudson River, the new building will vastly increase the Whitney’s exhibition and programming space, providing the first comprehensive view of its unsurpassed collection of modern and contemporary American art.
