AOL Travel Editor’s Review

One of the most overlooked of the major New York City art museums, the Whitney presents an 18,000-piece collection of mostly 20th-century art from such artists as Andy Warhol, Georgia O’Keefe, Chuck Close, Louise Bourgeois, Max Weber, and Jackson Pollock. Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney, a successful sculptor and serious art collector, founded the museum. It has occupied its current space since 1966, but recently announced it would move to a bigger, Renzo Piano-designed space downtown in the Meatpacking District (starting in 2015). info@whitney.org
