American Artistry for the Ages

Whitney Museum of American Art

Since its founding in 1931, the Whitney has served as a leading institution dedicated to the preservation and exhibition of 20th century and contemporary American art. The museum has grown from an initial collection of 600 works to 21,000 pieces produced by more than 3,000 American artists in its current collection. The Whitney's unprecedented focus on works created by living Americans exposes patrons to relatively young or unknown artists. With programs that cater to families, young children, teenagers, and communities alike, the Whitney aims to increase access to its unparalleled contemporary art collection.
