Our very own Whitney Western Art Museum has been voted the “Best Art Museum” by Newsweek! In this Readers’ Choice contest, expert panelists from the art world select ten nominees and then Newsweek readers vote on the winner. We’re in good company, topping a list that also includes the Art Institute of Chicago, the Museum of Modern Art, and the Denver Art Museum.
