The new Whitney Museum just opened on May 1st at its new home in the Meatpacking District. To say that the new Whitney is totally different from the old one is an under statement. The new Whitney is airy, clean, modern and has outdoor space which in New York is a feat unto itself. The space alone is a destination and then you get to see amazing art. The museum has 8 floors with views of the Hudson river and the High Line. Even if you’re not an art enthusiast, you could spend hours relaxing on one of the many terraces. I’ve always admired the curation of the Whitney; where they feature well known artists like Andy Warhol and Georgia O’Keeffe but also feature new and up and coming artists. I’m a huge supporter of the arts and I’m so fortunate that the Whitney is within walking distance from my home.
