After years of construction, the Whitney's new downtown location opened to much fanfare in 2015. Perched near the foot of the High Line, this architecturally stunning building – designed by Renzo Piano – makes a suitable introduction to the museum's superb collection. Inside the spacious, light-filled galleries, you'll find works by all the great American artists, including Edward Hopper, Jasper Johns, Georgia O’Keeffe and Mark Rothko.

In addition to rotating exhibits, there is a biennial on even-numbered years, an ambitious survey of contemporary art that rarely fails to generate controversy.
