ARCHITECT: FRANK LLOYD WRIGHT (1959)


The Soloman R. Guggenheim Museum, just east of Central Park in Manhattan, is one of Frank Lloyd Wright's most iconic buildings.
I found the structure to be just as exciting as the photos I have seen all my life.
The structure seemed to be in excellent repair and the crowds were well managed so that one could enjoy the artwork.
I have heard some critics say that some art museums are so unusual that they compete with the art... I found this to be completely inaccurate in this case.
An added blessing to visiting the museum was being able to share it with my sons and their sons.
