Frank Lloyd Wright's architectural masterpiece home to a world-renowned collection of modern and contemporary art.
Catch fall shows "Chaos and Classicism: Art in France, Italy, and Germany" (Oct 1) and "Vox Populi: Posters of the Interwar Years" (Sept 1) between 5:45pm-7:45pm on Saturdays when admission is free.
Most people walk the main spiral, but the smaller staircases usually house exhibits by more emerging artists.
A fantastic art museum with many famous works situated on a unique spiral walkway. When you walk into the main area, look up! It makes for a great photo.
Frank Lloyd Wright originally intended for Guggenheim visitors to take the elevator up and stroll down the ramps. Today, exhibitions are viewed both ways. The choice is yours!
World famous for a reason! Gotta go up the spiral walkway. Don't try and skateboard down it though...
Everything is interesting here. The building is a great piece of architecture and the exhibitions are usually must-see.
During its seasonal Art After Dark events, Frank Lloyd Wright’s iconic building is electrified with after-hours chic. Have a cocktail while listening to an artist- or curator-selected playlist.
The complexity and controversy surrounding the design of the museum lasted so long that both patron Solomon Guggenheim and architect Frank Lloyd Wright died before the building’s completion in 1959.
The Hugo Boss Prize winner earns a solo show at this Frank Lloyd Wright–designed icon. When the building was proposed, artists from Guston to Kline wrote in protest of its unusual shape.
On Saturday evenings between 5:45p - 7:45pm, is Pay What You Wish, where admission is by donation.
Today I learned its not child porn if its being showed in a respectable art museum like the guggenheim
Picasso Black and White is an on-going exhibition at the Guggenheim Museum to showcase Pablo Picasso's artworks in black and white throughout his prolific career from 1904-1971. Continues January 23.
The building itself is the main draw here, but don’t miss the exhibits, which are intellectually challenging and interesting. Closed on Thursdays!
To immediately avoid the masses at the bottom, take the elevator up to the top and walk down the exhibit instead of walking up!
Ask the Gallery Guides (with the big "Ask Me!" buttons) about the art! Even if you don't have a specific question, ask something like, "What is going on here?" They are super smart & friendly! Do it.
Take the elevator to the top and work your way down. Walking down the spiral is much easier. Added bonus: you get to see all the art walking downstairs when leaving if it's closing time.
"Start @ the TOP" - take the elevator to the top and spiral down. That's what FLW had in mind.checkout - "ART AFTER DARK: FIRST FRIDAYS" - DJ's and Booze
Winner of Best Museum Store in the Village Voice 2011 Best Of issue! The wrist-slap watch alone nearly overshadows the art.
don't wear heels to this museum. the whole thing is one big hill.
Anish Kapoor "Memory" installation + Kandinsky retrospective = a must see!
The building itself is a work to be pondered, but the exhibits are always stimulating and hold true to the museum’s form and intent.
Visit the store of the museum, a lot of cool stuff!!!...the salomon guggenheim Lego for example!
the Kandinsky show is excellent
Installation at the Guggenheim by Hans-Peter Feldmann, who was the winner of the 2010 Hugo Boss Prize. Check it out, it's until begin of November and pretty impressive!
great architecture, amazing exhibits and fun parties on first fridays
First fridays at the guggenheim. Music, art, cool people and drinks - what could be better?
Frank Lloyd Wright's spiral descent is a poor art-viewing experience but an unforgettable architectural one.
We love these exhibits! The museum is a little further uptown, but well worth the trip!
“The space within becomes the reality of the building.” -Frank Lloyd Wright
Frank Lloyd Wright designed this building with nature in mind. In addition to his use of organic shapes, the artist also helped advocate for its location across the street from Central Park.
Home to modern masterpieces, the building itself is a a huge draw too. The iconic spiral building was the final work of 20th-century architect Frank Lloyd Wright, though he died before its completion.
Absolutely fantastic performance installation by artist Tino Sehgal. Do not miss this! Start at the mezzanine by speaking to one of the 7 year olds and work your way up the rotunda.
Frank Lloyd Wright: From Within Outward exhibit
Went to the Museum Mile Festival. Too crowded to get into the museums, but the street performances were awesome!
