See artistic masterworks and exciting modern views of the land, people, and wildlife of the West in the Whitney Western Art Museum. Visitors are encouraged to make connections across culture and time. The thematic display presents an innovative way of interpreting American art of the West that encourages discovery, creativity, and presents the artwork in a tranquil, contemplative space.
Visitors are welcome to experience the Spirit of the American West through art. Along with exquisite paintings and sculpture, there are activities located throughout the Whitney Museum that appeal to all ages and interests.
The Whitney Museum’s extraordinary collection of paintings, prints, sculpture, and more give our visitors a broad look at the west through the works of the artists. Our online collection can do the same for online visitors.
