Philadelphia

Whitney Museum of American Art

Discover the past and present of American culture through the lens of these masterful artworks in the Whitney’s new, impressively designed building in Chelsea with floor to ceiling windows overlooking the High Line. The Whitney Museum of American Art is dedicated to showcasing art of the United States with a full range of twentieth century and contemporary American Art with a significant focus on works by living artists. The museum is the first to devote its attention to works of living American artists and its signature exhibition, the Biennial, is the nation’s leading collection of the most recent development in American art.

The museum continues to consistently purchase artwork within a year of its creation, often well before artists are broadly discovered. Sculptor Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney began collecting works of living American artists in the early 1900’s. After her collection was denied from the Metropolitan Museum of Art, she opened up the museum with its innovative and radical focus to exhibit American art exclusively.  

A visit to the Whitney will leave you in awe of the extraordinary artwork of Americans from the early 20th century through today with special exhibitions of videography, architecture, photography and new media.
