The Guggenhein Museum | Manhattan

The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum is one of the most famous and most visited Art museums in New York City. It is located in the Upper East side neighborhood of Manhattan-Its collections are composed of Impressionist, Post-Impressionist, early Modern and contemporary art. Guggenheim museum is also well known for it’s unique cylindrical design that was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright.

It is a must to visit a Museum in NYC. I wish I have more time to visit more but at least I got to see one of the most famous ones. Frankly, the main reason why I chose to visit Guggenheim Museum out of all the others is because I want to see Doug Wheeler’s spiky-floored Synthetic Dessert but sadly, it was moved to other location days before our visit. But we still made the most of it and it truly was unbelievable to see some of the famous artists’ artworks like Picasso’s “Woman with Yellow Hair” painting.

This Felix Gonzalez Torres’ minimalist form of art are spills of candy. They are free for the taking and you can get as many as you’d like and eat them. (They don’t taste that good in my opinion so don’t go crazy taking that many).
