The history of the Solomon R. Guggenheim dates back to 1937 when the private collection was transformed into a public museum. Today the Guggenheim counts a number of locations around the world with access to shared collections, temporary exhibitions and joint programming.
The collection is conceived as an integrated whole that may be continuously enhanced in response to emerging talent as well as a mandate to fill in critical historical gaps. The Guggenheim’s building, designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, is a perfect manifestation of this belief as its spiralling rotunda allows visitors to view different, but interdependent galleries simultaneously.
