Philanthropist Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney (1875–1942) founded the museum to house her personal collection in 1930. It’s grown to become a significant collection of American art from the 20th and 21st centuries, according to the museum.

“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 celebration of the complexity and diversity of art and culture in the United States. Through this mission and a steadfast commitment to artists themselves, 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.”

The Whitney Museum of American Art is located at 99 Gansevoort St. between Washington and West Sts in Manhattan.
