What To Expect
The Whitney Museum of American Art was born out of the advocacy of sculptor Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney to help living American artists.
At the beginning of the 20th century, artists struggled to find a venue to exhibit or sell their work in the United States. Recognizing the difficulties these artists faced, Mrs. Whitney began acquiring and featuring their work, hence becoming the leading advocate of American art from 1907 until her death in 1942.
Today, the Whitney Museum of American Art features over 21,000 works made by more than 3,000 artists. These works in all media, from painting, photography, sculpture, drawing, film, and video, among others, showcase the history of art and the creative process of artists in the United States from the 1900s to today.
