New Yorkers crave all things new, and on May 1st, the city gave way to a new “new” as the Whitney Museum welcomed it’s new home in the Meatpacking District. The highly anticipated opening kicked off with a block party filled with interactive exhibitions and creative performances
The new Whitney exudes modernity; a true structural visionary, designed by Italian architect, Renzo Piano. The modern exterior architecture gives few clues about what is inside, thus attracting visitors through it’s secretive and curious appeal.
The current exhibition, America Is Hard to See, captures all things American, and shows an insightful history and transcendence of American culture throughout the museum’s eight floors.
America is Hard to See, currently showing until September 27, 2015. Whitney Museum of American Art | 99 Gansevoort St, New York, NY 10014.
