Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum

The Guggenheim Museum is a work of art in itself. Designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, the building's iconic curved facade stands out on the orderly row of edifices lining its stretch of Fifth Avenue. Completed near the end of Wright's career (it opened in 1959), it is often considered the architect's masterpiece. Inside, galleries are connected by a long spiral ramp that ascends toward a skylight atop the rotunda. Only a small amount of the space is dedicated to the Guggenheim's permanent collection; usually, most of the museum is given over to a temporary exhibition. Compared to other New York institutions focused on modern and contemporary art, the Guggenheim often tends to be more international in its focus, shining light on art and artists from Africa, Asia, and Latin America, though by no means exclusively.

Must-See Museum

This spiraling white concrete structure, designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, is one of the most iconic buildings in NYC, if not in all of the USA. This is one museum where the building itself is as interesting as the exhibition inside. First check out the façade from the Central Park side of Fifth Ave, and then head inside to examine the rotunda and the famous coiled ramp; it’s more enjoyable (and easier) to take the elevator to the top and walk down.

Guggenheim Museum

2nd Guggenheim out of 5. I think I caught it on an off day because one floor was off limits due to installation. Still the unique architecture cannot be denied. Maybe next I'm out in NYC Ill check it out again.

Splendid Playground

The latest exhibit at the Guggenheim on through May 8th is a "creative spectrum of Japan’s most influential avant-garde collective of the postwar era."

When you walk into the spiral museum - look up and wonder around. I really enjoyed how each piece peaked curiosity or inspiration and production.

James Turrell @ Guggenheim

Frank Lloyd Wright’s Guggenheim Museum is one of the iconic architecture marvels of New York City. The rotunda spirals upward and the art changes as you travel up and down seeing it from different vantage point each time. I have seen many exhibits at the Guggenheim. Some challenges the space while others merely co-exists with it.

James Turrell’s current exhibit is savagely simplistic and mind altering as a result. Conceived and created with the rotunda in mind, Turrell’s installation challenges the notion of perception, depth and almost existence in itself. I was blinded by the art and sheer possibility it proposed. I want to tell you more but that would ruin the experience. Go see it for yourself, lay down in the middle of the rotunda, look up and be wowed. Turrell’s exhibit is an experience that must be felt.

A Work of Art

Often referred to as The Guggenheim Museum, it is one of the most recognizable art museums in New York City. I was there only once, and it was disappointing. There were more empty walls than arts in the building. It made me wonder if the crowd was there for the arts or just for the architecture of the building; which I thought was an art itself.

As beautiful as the art work it holds

The Guggenheim is like a breathing, living entity and the people are its blood, moving along its veins, taking in its riches along the way.

A New York favorite

New York City has so many great museums and I visit them all quite often whenever a new exhibit piques my interest. The Guggenheim is a favorite among locals and tourists alike. The admission price is a little more than other museums so I recommend visiting it on their pay-as-you-wish Saturdays. That said, even if you're not interested in the exhibit itself you should walk into the lobby to admire the architecture. Seen from the outside, the building is impressive but viewed from the inside you can't help but look up and gawk at its structural design for a good while.
