Whitney Museum of American Art Reopening
One of the most anticipated openings of the year is finally happening this spring. May 1 marks the Whitney Museum's official move downtown to the Meatpacking District, where its inaugural exhibition is already promising to be the largest and most in-depth display of the Whitney's permanent collection. The museum, which focuses primarily on emerging artists and contemporary work, will display a collection of 20th- and 21st-century American art in its greatly expanded gallery space. Also happening during their inaugural year are a retrospective of Frank Stella's work, which includes sculptures, drawings and paintings, and a survey of Archibald Motley's Harlem Renaissance–inspired expressionist pieces.
