Aside the Winter Olympics games in Vancouver, international art festivities begin in New York with the Whitney Biennial opening today. The Biennial is celebrating the seventy fifth exhibit titled “2010″ presenting a platform of a world wide range of well known to unknown artists that are making work comprehensive to the times.
