Guggenheim Museum and its collection

Guggenheim Museum

The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, located in New York City, is maintained by the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation. The museum is named after Solomon Robert Guggenheim, the founder of the foundation and the museum itself. It is a part of the Guggenheim Foundation's global network of museums, which includes the Guggenheim Bilbao, the Guggenheim Hermitage Museum in Las Vegas, the Deutsche Guggenheim in Berlin, and the Peggy Guggenheim Collection in Venice.

Architectural Design by Frank Lloyd Wright

The original architectural design of the Guggenheim Museum in New York is the work of renowned American architect Frank Lloyd Wright. The museum is famous for its curved facade, representing modern architecture in its most organic form. The design was inspired by the shape of the Thatcheria mirabilis mollusk, or the Nautilus, as acknowledged by the designer himself. The building was designated a National Historic Landmark in 2008 and was included in the World Heritage List under the title 'The 20th-century architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright' in July 2019.

Modern Art Collection

The Guggenheim Museum houses an important collection of modern art, amassed by its founder Solomon Robert Guggenheim and his niece Peggy Guggenheim in the early 20th century. The collection holds an incalculable artistic and monetary value, featuring works from a wide range of artists and periods. The museum's mission is to promote the understanding and appreciation of art, primarily of the modern and contemporary periods, through exhibitions, education programs, research initiatives, and publications.
