The Whitney as its called has unveiled a new museum of art and architecture. The Whitney Museum of New York has moved to is new home filled with art and artifacts that render the viewers with art of mind. The Whitney Museum of American Art is designed by the architect, Renzo Piano of Paris.

Museums are not only holders of our art but are signifiers of our societies lens on creativity. As stated the museum will be here for the next 100 years. The space is understood for its present contribution and its future representation of the past. The rooms are choreographed to manage the art today and the past while sustainably thinking of what art will be.

“It is glorious, the new Whitney: surprise! And the surprise with which it has triumphed is not down only to other institutions’ failures. During construction, New Yorkers were stumped by the new Whitney’s squat, asymmetrical exterior, variously analogized to a hospital, a waste treatment plant, an icebreaker, or, in one critic’s overheated estimation, a “nuclear-powered guided-missile cruiser.” The north façade in particular is dull, and maybe the white baffles and glass panes are a bit too Steve Jobs, yet the building has turned out to be far more legible upon completion. A central concrete spine, containing elevators and service elements, divides the office spaces on the north side from the galleries on the south. Entering from the south on Gansevoort Street, you ascend via one of three public elevators—each covered with zippy, cartoonish murals by the late Richard Artschwager—to the eighth floor, the highest of four consecutive gallery spaces,” reports the New Republic .

The museum will be a landmark of tourism but more so a symbol of conscious holding the creativity of one of the greatest cities in the world.
