The Whitney Museum of American Art is nearly ready to open the doors to its brand spanking new Renzo Piano-designed building in the Meatpacking district. Out with the old, and in with the new. And that means it’s going to be rehanging its world-renowned permanent collection in 50,000-square-feet of indoor galleries, and 13,000-square-feet of outdoor exhibition space, for the inaugural exhibition “America Is Hard to See.”

Today, the museum announced the full list of artists for the show. It’s going to feature an impressive 650 artworks by a whopping 407 artists, with works dating from 1900 to the present. And that cryptic title? It’s taken from a pointy Robert Frost poem about the deception of Columbus’ discovery of America.
