Whitney Museum

In Manhattan on February 12, 2009 at 5:58 pm

Another of the biggies in NYC. The Whitney is a museum for artists – they focus widely on very contemporary and upcoming artists. It is a place for artists to go to see the best of the best contemporary art. It is a museum for all those people who are tired of seeing lots of modernist, dada, and Warhol art. It is a museum for people who are really looking to expand their thoughts and understanding of what it means to be art. 

While I’m not always a fan of the Whitney it is certainly a “discovery” sort of place. You’ve got to be patient, be prepared to see some trippy, wild, weird, and sometimes not wholly enjoyable stuff. But its worth it when you do finally find that gem. 

Alexander Calder’s Circus has been on view for quite some time. Last chance notice for anyone looking to see it still. It closes on Feb. 15.
