The Met Breuer is the former Whitney Museum of Art. It was designed by Hungarian-born Bauhaus artist Marcel Breuer (BROY-er) in 1966.

Prominent cubism collector Leonard Lauder (Estée Lauder) came up with the idea to move the Whitney downtown and got the Met to pick up the old building. It opened in 2016.

The Met Breuer is currently run by Sheena Wagstaff, formerly of the Tate Modern in London.
