Though New York has no shortage of museums and art galleries, the Whitney Museum of American Art is known for displaying some of the most cutting-edge works from contemporary artists. With a specific emphasis on the twentieth and twenty-first century, the museum is a must for art-lovers attending Trend Hunter’s New York innovation conference.

The Whitney Museum of American Art originally gained recognition as the first museum in New York dedicated to the works of living American artists such as Jasper Johns and Cindy Sherman. Today the museum carries on its mission by showcasing cutting-edge exhibitions such as Dreamlands and Red in View.

In addition to its impressive collection, the museum has also become a major tourist destination due to its modern, multi-level design created by architect Renzo Piano. The unique design of the building provides stunning views of the city, as well as the nearby High Line and Hudson River.
