NEW YORK, N.Y. - The Whitney Museum of American Art says exhibitions for its first year in its new home include shows dedicated to its permanent collection and artists including Archibald Motley and Frank Stella.

The museum announced the programming details on Thursday at the facility in downtown Manhattan that is currently under construction. It's expected to open in Spring 2015.

The new space vastly increases the amount of display room. The inaugural show will use more than 60,000 square-feet of indoor and outdoor exhibition area to showcase items from the Whitney's collection.

Following that exhibit will be shows focusing on different artists. Along with Motley and Stella, showcased artists will include Laura Poitras as well as works from the collection of Ethan Wagner and Thea Westreich Wagner.
