The Whitney's Website Has Been Revamped With 21,000 New Artworks
The Whitney Museum of American Art will not be open in its new location until May, but if you're in desperate need of an art fix, you can peruse their newly updated online collection.
Previously only containing 700 works, the website now boasts more than 21,000 pieces from 3000 different artists. Some notable examples include Georgia O'Keeffe, David Hockney, Jeff Koons, and Edward Hopper (who has over 3000 works in the collection).You can browse by author's last name, or search for key words. There's even a teacher section to help with lesson plans.
All the art is from 1900 forward and includes some pretty incredible contempary art. Besides pictures, the website also offers text, audio, and video files.
