The Whitney Museum of American Art — known as “The Whitney” — is an art museum with a focus on 20th- and 21st-century American art. The Whitney’s permanent collection comprises more than 21,000 paintings, sculptures, drawings, prints, photographs, films, videos, and new media by more than 3,00 artists. It places a particular emphasis on exhibiting the work of living artists for its collection as well as maintaining an extensive permanent collection containing many important pieces from the first half of the last century. The museum’s Annual and Biennial exhibitions have long been a venue for younger and less well-known artists whose work is showcased there.
