Exhibitions
Grant Wood: American Gothic and Other Fables
Now on - Jun 10, 2018

Grant Wood is best known for his American Gothic double portrait of a humorless pitchfork-wielding farmer and his stern-faced wife. But there's far more to this incredible talent than his most famous piece. American Gothic and Other Fables is a thrilling retrospective of Wood's work, taking the visitor through his early forays in the Arts and Crafts and Impressionist movements through to his late-career murals and oil paintings.

Description

In the early 20th century the art world was heavily biased towards European art and older classics. The philanthropist Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney wasn't having it. She started her own museum devoted to living American artists. It's prospered ever since, becoming a touchstone of artistic achievement of the 20th and 21st centuries.

Still devoted to American art, the Whitney houses 21,000 works by 3,000 artists across many media. You’ll find paintings, sculptures, drawings, videos, photography, and new media. We’re not saying you’ll get to feast your eyes on each and every piece, but you will get an insight into how American creative genius has manifested itself from 1900 to today.

Andy Warhol might be the most iconic name among the artists featured, but you’ll also get to meet other 20th-century titans such as Jasper Johns, Georgia O’Keeffe, and Edward Hopper.

In addition to the visionaries of the recent past, the Whitney is still very much dedicated to championing the new. Every two years the Whitney Biennial features the work of young up-and-coming American artists.

Like most New Yorkers, the Whitney has moved around the city, a lot. Its most recent move was in 2015 to a new Downtown building designed by famed architect Renzo Piano. The new building gives the Whitney more space than ever to showcase its massive collection of modern and contemporary American art.

Located on the West side of Manhattan in the Meatpacking district, the Whitney Museum of American Art right off the High Line is the place you’ll meet American genius of the now.

Getting the tickets before is definitely a smarter choice. And it is also better to go late hours, as you enjoy the place to yourself.

great

I was really looking forward to seeing the Whitney from an architectural point of view. The setting of the building is marvelous - certainly approach it from the High Line. Movement and flow within the building is irrational. Unless you use the outdoor stairs (not doable in snow and rain) between levels, traffic flow between the galleries is almost impossible by the overtaxed elevator service. Two levels were completely closed for viewing, and what exhibits were open were very thin.
Tiqets does speed up the entry process, but you will still get snagged in a coat check line -- wait for the elevator line, etc.
