Photo by myself on Madison Avenue and 75th Street, on the Upper East Side.
The modern facade of the Whitney Museum of American Art includes a huge canopy made of concrete, that is supported at the ends. The building was built in the mid-1960s. I was in the neighborhood on Monday for a doctor's appointment.
The museum's permanent collection includes work from Matthew Barney, Andy Warhol, Jean-Michel Basquiat and my personal favorite, Berenice Abbott.
I'm not hip enough about modern art to know anything about the current exhibits, which are ultra-modern and include conceptual and video art.
