ABOUT THE WHITNEY MUSEUM
The Whitney Museum of American Art, founded in 1930 by artist and philanthropist Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney (1875–1942), houses the foremost collection of American art from the 20th and 21st centuries. Mrs. Whitney, an early and ardent supporter of American modern art, nurtured groundbreaking artists when audiences were still largely interested in classical masters.
From her vision emerged the Whitney Museum of American Art, which has been championing the most innovative art of the United States for ninety years.
The core of the Whitney’s mission is to collect, preserve, interpret, and exhibit American art of our time and serve a wide variety of audiences in celebrating the complexity and diversity of art and culture in the United States. Through this, and with a steadfast commitment to artists, the Whitney has long been a powerful force in support of modern and contemporary art, and continues to help define what is innovative and influential in American art today.
