Whitney Museum of American Art
As the preeminent institution devoted to the art of the United States, the Whitney Museum of American Art presents the full range of twentieth-century and contemporary American art, with a special focus on works by living artists. The Whitney is dedicated to collecting, preserving, interpreting, and exhibiting American art, and its collection–arguably the finest holding of twentieth-century American art in the world–is the Museum’s key resource.
The Whitney embarked on a project to convert the top-floor of its iconic Breuer Building into the Museum’s permanent galleries, relocating its administrative offices from the main building into three interconnected brownstones. The program also included a new library facility and museum store, as well as upgrades to the mechanical, lighting and infrastructure systems.
