Visited the Whitney Museum at its New Site Today

About once a year Karen and I go to the Whitney Museum which was located on Madison Avenue and 75th Street,  Today we visited the museum at its new location at 99 Gansevoort Street in the Meat Packing District.  We took the subway to 8th Avenue and 14th Street and walk west to the Highline and then south one block to the new location.

It was absolutely beautiful both inside and out.  It opened on May 1 so it was crowded with people wanting to see the new building.  The opening exhibit is called "America is Hard to See."  This exhibit examines American art from the begining of the 20th century till today.  It includes over 600 works in various formats that  elaborates on the themes, ideas, beliefs, and passions that have galvanized American artists.

It was a good way to spend a staycation day.
