Today we went to the Whitney Biennial Show 2012. The show was pure trash. You will never convince me that just because the pieces are in the Whitney, they represent ART. Most are just gimmicky stuff that any grade-school student could come

Bring a bodyguard and call your Bobby Brown because the Whitney is groundbreaking. Literally. For one moment in time, head to Madison & 75th Street and see Whitney before she moves downtown. Earlier this year, the Museum and architect

This museum houses important 20th century American Art. I remember this museum as a colorful and cheerful museum. I recommend those who would like to save money to visit on Friday between 6-9pm because you can pay as you wish during those

The Whitney Museum of American Art is truly an excellent museum with a wide variety of work ranging from some tradition art to allowing one to appreciate the wonders of modern architectture. Overall, this is a wonderul museum for one to make a day of, which is why I recommend to anyone - btw, being less tourist oriented is a huge plus as the museum is not as crowded and yet houses amazing works.

THe Whitney Museum Of American Art is an interesting place to say the least. The obvious emphasis is on American Art but where the Whitney separates itself from a lot of other famous museums is there willingness to showcase work by newer artists. You definitely want to go to the Biennial next time they put it together. AN unhappy looking bulding, it is severe looking.

PROS: Nice art
CONS: Expensive to get in

The Whitney Museum has a very nice collection of American art. They have paintings, sculptures, photographs, and extremely bizarre abstract exhibits. They have a collection of the famous American masters as well as some lesser known artists. Some exhibts are truly wacky. For example, a few years ago they had an exhibit that took up an entire room and consisted of bicycles, candy, legos, and much more. Children may enjoy some parts of the museum, but for the most part, they will find it boring. Art lovers will certainly enjoy this museum.

I saw the permanent exhibition and the Tim Hawkinson installation and was blown away by the art. I was so impressed with Tim Hawkinson that I then went to his other installation at the IBM building. The museum itself seems to be in need

Get thyself to the permanent collection and whitness one of the largest Edward Hopper collections. Breathtaking.

Had to wait in line to get in because the biennial show of modern art had just started.

I love the way the Whitney shows me things I've never seen, and then I can't believe I didn't know about them before. Take the Whitney's current exhibition of quilts from a small town in Alabama -- who knew that quilts could be so moving?

Where else can you go to a museum in NYC that's devoted to American Art? It's a must. Not always on target, but always worth a visit.

The permanent stuff is great. You have to love the Hopper stuff, the mobiles, the surrealism, and the Depression era realism. They also had an exhibit of 50's expressionists that was very impressive. Giant Oldenberg soft violin,

A trip to the Whitney is worth it if only for the Hopper paintings. The permanent collection is A one. The two special exhibits were merely so so. Definitely worth a trip here.
