One of the country’s top private collections of contemporary art, this is a bold assortment of avant-garde work: conceptual art, photography, sculpture and painting are all represented. Owned by brother and sister Jason and Jennifer Rubell, the collection features important works by Jean-Michel Basquiat, Keith Haring, Cindy Sherman, Jeff Koons, Andy Warhol and Damien Hirst. It’s located in a former DEA confiscation center—something that the late Steve Rubell, founder of Manhattan’s infamous Studio 54 and uncle to Jennifer and Jason—would have found hugely amusing.
