On May 1, four years after breaking ground and seven years after initial designs were released, The Whitney Museum of American Art opens its new space at 99 Gansevoort Street, the site of a former meatpacking facility. The museum’s first iteration—Whitney Studio, a place for artists created by Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney in 1914—was located at 8 West 8th Street, just a few blocks away. In the new structure's lobby-level gallery, Whitney herself can been seen lounging on a divan, welcoming the eyes of the press who visited the site this week in anticipation of the official opening.
