The Uffizi Galleries first brought together three extraordinary museum complexes in 2014. Together, these three structures contain the core of the collections of art, precious artisan-made objects, books, and plants belonging to the Medici, Habsburg-Lorraine and Savoy families. It is a stunning collection of treasures dating from Antiquity to the 20th century, and over the years, it has contributed to the fame of the Uffizi, Pitti Palace and Boboli Gardens. Since the Renaissance, these three museum sites have been connected to one another by an ingenious construction, the Vasari Corridor, and together they form one of the most important, most visited culture hubs in the world.
La nascita della Galleria risale al 1784, quando il Granduca di Toscana Pietro Leopoldo riorganizzò l’Accademia delle Arti del Disegno, fondata nel 1563 da Cosimo I de’Medici, nella moderna Accademia di Belle Arti. La nuova istituzione occupò i locali del trecentesco Ospedale di San Matteo e quelli del convento di San Niccolò di Cafaggio. Il museo si arricchì con le soppressioni delle chiese e dei conventi ordinate da Pietro Leopoldo nel 1786 e da Napoleone Bonaparte nel 1810. L’evento decisivo per la storia del museo fu il trasferimento del David di Michelangelo da Piazza della Signoria nell’agosto 1873. La scultura più celebre del mondo attese nove anni, custodita in una cassa di legno, la conclusione della costruzione della Tribuna progettata dall’architetto Emilio De Fabris per accoglierla. L’odierna Galleria dell’Accademia fu istituita nel 1882.
Our Māori name, ‘Te Papa Tongarewa’, translates literally to ‘container of treasures’. A fuller interpretation is ‘our container of treasured things and people that spring from mother earth here in New Zealand’.The name is made up of two classical expressions used in Māori poetry and song

The Rama IX Art Museum Foundation was set up in 1996 with the objective of establishing a permanent museum dedicated to Thai contemporary and modern art and to be named "The Rama IX Art Museum" in honor of H.M. The King Bhumipol Adulyadej.
A major art exhibition was undertaken by the Foundation in 1997 - the "Golden Jubilee Art Exhibition" to honor H.M. The King's Golden Jubilee and to raise funds for the musuem project.
Due to the ensuing economic and financial crisis over the past two years, fund raising efforts and support for such endeavor has diminished dramatically. It is unlikely that the Foundation will obtain sufficient funding from governmental and private sources to achieve its' objective in the near future.
Therefore it has been decided in early 1999 that the Foundation, with the limited resources still remaining, would in the meantime build the Rama IX Art Museum in cyberspace and dedicate this Website of Thai Contemporary and Modern Art to H.M. The King in celebration of his 72th birthday this December 5, 1999.
As the preeminent institution devoted to the art of the United States, the Whitney Museum of American Art presents the full range of twentieth-century and contemporary American art, with a special focus on works by living artists. The Whitney is dedicated to collecting, preserving, interpreting, and exhibiting American art, and its collection—arguably the finest holding of twentieth-century American art in the world—is the Museum's key resource. The Museum's signature exhibition, the Biennial, is the country's leading survey of the most recent developments in American art.
Innovation has been a hallmark of the Whitney since its beginnings. It was the first museum dedicated to the work of living American artists and the first New York museum to present a major exhibition of a video artist (Nam June Paik in 1982). Such figures as Jasper Johns, Cy Twombly, and Cindy Sherman were given their first museum retrospectives by the Whitney. The Museum has consistently purchased works within the year they were created, often well before the artists became broadly recognized. The Whitney was the first museum to take its exhibitions and programming beyond its walls by establishing corporate-funded branch facilities, and the first museum to undertake a program of collection-sharing (with the San Jose Museum of Art) in order to increase access to its renowned collection.
Designed by architect Renzo Piano and situated between the High Line and the Hudson River, the Whitney's new building vastly increases the Museum’s exhibition and programming space, providing the most expansive view ever of its unsurpassed collection of modern and contemporary American art.
