Venue Description: Celebrated worldwide as one of the most noteworthy art museums and architectural icons of the 20th century, the Guggenheim Museum is all together an essential cultural center, an educational institution, as well as the heart of an international network of museums. Frank Lloyd Wright's iconic inverted ziggurat leads visitors through a series of interconnected rooms and requires them to retrace their steps when exiting. Visitors can experience special exhibitions of modern and contemporary art, lectures by artists and critics, performances and film screenings, classes for teens and adults, and daily tours of the galleries led by experienced docents. Founded on a collection of early modern masterpieces, the Guggenheim Museum today is an ever-increasing institution devoted to the art of the 20th century and beyond. Through extraordinary exhibitions, education programs, research initiatives, and publications, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation achieves its mission of promoting the understanding and appreciation of modern and contemporary art and architecture, and the collection, conservation, and observation of the art of our time.
