Florine Stettheimer, Sun, 1931.

COURTESY THE WHITNEY MUSEUM OF AMERICAN ART

The Whitney Museum of American Art’s new Renzo Piano–designed home in the Meatpacking District opens to the public in a little more than two weeks, on May 1, and today it released the full list of artists whose work will appear in its inaugural show, “America Is Hard to See,” which will fill the building with pieces from its permanent collection.

The list has a total of 407 artists and groups, and includes a fairly thrilling range of people, from Bill Traylor to Florine Stettheimer to Jordan Wolfson. Asco? The Whitney’s got it. Horace Pippin? Yes. Louise Lawler, Sturtevant, Lee Lozano, and David Hammons? Check, check, check, check. Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney, the sculptor who founded the museum in 1931, is on there too. The list:
