In May 2015, the Whitney Museum of American Art relocated from it’s long-time home on Madison Avenue to a huge new space downtown. In conversation New Yorkers tend to refer to this new location as “the new Whitney.”
I was at the new Whitney recently, and as usual I was drawn to museum goers interacting with the art. (This interest is morphing into its own project.) Here is a sketch from that visit. The painting on the wall (of people looking at art in 1921) is “Juliana Force at the Whitney Studio Club” by Guy Pène Du Bois. Juliana Force, by the way, was the director of the original “old-old” Whitney, when it opened in 1930.
