NYC's Whitney to Build New Downtown Museum -- posted by Florida Fine Art Blog

Architect Renzo Piano will be building the new Whitney Museum of American Art in New York City. The $680 million dollar project is projected to be completed in 2015. Renzo Piano recently completed the spectacular new wing at the Chicago Art Institute (pictured above).  The Whitney holds one of New York's finest museum collections and the new six-story building will allow them to display more of the collection at once. Two questions still remain, will they be able to raise the money and what will happen to the current museum space uptown. The Whitney will break ground in 2011. GL
