The New Whitney Building


The new Whitney building has been well-discussed elsewhere, but let me just say, it was a pure pleasure to visit it today. Not least because of the way the building incorporates itself into the neighborhood and the colorful Mary Heilmann chairs (a temporary work entitled Sunset) meant to encourage hanging out. Inside the building, the exhibition of the re-installed permanent collection, “America Is Hard to See,” looks fantastic. Admittedly the current crowds make it a little harder to appreciate all the works on view, but I look forward to going back soon.
