Hold the phone; The Whitney announces its official opening

Howard Halle

This just in: The Whitney has announced that it's opening date at its new Renzo-Piano-designed home—already a glowering presence on the High Line—is May 1, thus joining the worldwide celebration of the proletariat by welcoming the public into a building paid for by gazillionaires. The opening exhibition will be a showcase of the museum's permanent collection. The works will include classics from the Whitney's holdings like Edward Hopper's Early Sunday Morning.

Looking ahead to Fall, the lineup will include surveys of Archibald Motley and Frank Stella as well as the debut of Westreich/Wagner collection of contemporary art, which was donated to the Whitney in 2012. It includes a work by Jeff Koons, just in case you didn't enough of him at his Whitney retrospective.
