Its coming up, the opening of the Whitney Museum's new home. At the Museum’s annual fall gala last night, it was announced that the new building at the Meatpacking District, designed by Renzo Piano, will open to the public on Friday, May 1, 2015. This is a great end to a long and complex debate between Postmodernist and Modernist architects, artists, preservationists, and critics that began in the 80s, when the Museum proposed an addition designed by Princeton architect Michael Graves. Now, with the new building, which will double the exhibition space, the Whitney seeks to affirm its role as the leading museum of modern and contemporary art of the United States. And the old beloved building, which Marcel Breuer designed in 1966, under the Metropolitan Museum will turned into a space for showcasing the museum's design collection.
