The current iteration of whitney.org was launched on April 25, 2017 and built in-house by the Whitney Museum of American Art. The Carl and Ruth Shapiro Family National Center for Accessible Media, WGBH Educational Foundation have served as accessibility consultants. The Museum's graphic identity was designed by Experimental Jetset. The Museum's online collection was developed both in-house and with GallerySystems.

In 2009, the Whitney began commissioning Sunrise/Sunset, a series of Internet art projects to mark sunrise and sunset in New York City, every day. Unfolding over a timeframe of ten to thirty seconds, each project forms a visual and interactive intervention with the website itself. Sunrise/Sunset is curated by Whitney Adjunct Curator of New Media Christiane Paul and implemented by the Museum's Digital Media Department.
To see Sunrise/Sunset, be anywhere on this website during sunrise or sunset, New York time.
