The Whitney’s Conservation Department preserves our collection and evaluates and treats new acquisitions. Recently, we have undertaken several long-term conservation projects, including Alexander calder’s Circus, Eva Hesse’s Untitled (Rope Piece), and all three of the Whitney’s George Segal works, Girl in a Doorway, The Bus Station, and Walk, Don’t Walk.

Each year the Whitney demonstrates the exciting range and diversity of American art through its exhibition schedule. The Museum annually introduces hundreds of thousands of visitors to forward-thinking, creative exhibitions that explore current themes in the art world. Whether a thematic display drawn from our collection or a special exhibition, each focuses on the artistic process and seeks to further dialogue on the nation’s cultural fabric.

The Whitney’s Frances Mulhall Achilles Library serves Museum staff as well as an international community of scholars, students, and curators. Its unique archival holdings and special collections chronicle the development of modern and contemporary art and artists. Last year, we acquired more than 2,500 items, including artists books and ephemera for our in-depth holdings of specific artists.
