Here's How to Whitney From Home
Even in uncertain times, there are no limits to the creative spirit. It’s what makes us human.
So while our physical Museum is temporarily closed to the public, know that the spirit of the Whitney is open to all—and we're committed to connecting you to inspiration, knowledge, and a sense of community through art.
We've laid out some of the best ways to explore American art of the twentieth century to today across our website and social media channels. Start with a journey through our online collection, revisit some of your favorite Whitney exhibitions, and relax with an array of video and audio content that will bring you closer to the stories behind the art and artists that we at the Whitney hold so dear.

There are plenty of ways to explore Vida Americana: Mexican Muralists Remake American Art, 1925–1945 while the Museum is temporarily closed. View photos of the exhibition's galleries, listen to the audio guide and watch related videos, and go deeper into the themes of this landmark exhibition by reading an excerpt from the catalogue, available in English and Spanish.
Check out Artport—the Museum's portal to Internet art and an online gallery space for new media art commissioned by the Whitney. Journey through a website that advertises a fictitious New York City apartment that covers more than 300 million square feet, watch an artist paint fifty-six portraits in real time—and much more.
