Frank Lloyd "Oh So" wRIGHT
The exterior of the Guggenheim is certainly one of the most recognizable buildings in New York City. Inside the spiral walls hangs the work of artists like Chagall, Picasso, Manet, and Kandinsky. Special exhibits often take over most of the museum exploring architecture and visual arts, often complimenting the dramatic Frank Lloyd Wright structure. The current exhibition is a spectacular new mise-en-scne by Tino Sehgal that isn't to be missed!

      Everything about the Guggenheim is fabulous. Their current Haunted: Contemporary Photography/Video/Performance exhibit is really outstanding. Definitely worth a trip uptown.

      Distinctive 5th Avenue Building
      This distinctive Upper East Side building was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, and that fact in itself is a reason to visit. The look of the building is familiar to many of us... a stacked cylinder that is wider at the top than at the bottom. When I first visited The Guggenheim, my interest was in seeing this Frank Lloyd Wright design masterpiece, rather than the artwork inside. Since I am not a huge fan of contemporary art, I assumed that the paintings would be of secondary interest to me. I was wrong. There is an interesting variety of art displayed in The Guggenheim, and in an ingenious way. A large skylight provides natural light for the interior atrium of the building. Visitors wind their way up or down the the easy-to-walk spiral to enjoy Impressionist, Post-Impressionist and Modern paintings and sculptures. This is a very interesting manageable-sized museum.
