I think I know somebody named Teddy Guggenheim from Junior High School. Nice Person. Do you have him as a managing person or otherwise in your data banks?

El Greco to Picasso, the major exhibit presently at the Solomon R Guggenheim Museum, is spectacular. As you wind your way along the classic spiral centerpiece of the museum, it is almost too much for the senses.
The amount of Picasso pieces are amazing. Along with the works of Dali, Cezzanne, Goya, Cotan, Velzquez and a host of others, you have the permanent displays in the side halls at which to marvel with works by Rodin, Renoir and Chagall. The displays of Spanish artists are arranged by theme. Stll Life, Portraits, the Madonna, animals, the Church, et cetera.
I found the still life section particularly appealing. Cotan, for example, along with many others, always seemed to have an item, a knife or a piece of fruit, hanging off a table. Not being a serious student of art, I imagine this is to provide us with a sense of depth to the pictures.
Each wing of the Guggenheim, each level of its spiral wing, deserves a day. One visit is inviting an overload to the senses; but what an overload! El Greco to Picasso is there through March 28, 2007. Some who review it may say its, "expensive." No. Its rich!

The ticket prices are a bit expensive in my opinion. $10. They do have a great collection of Picasso. Perhaps this is a museum for those that have an extreme understanding in art because most of the art displayed in the front are minimalist art. The building's architect is spectacular and the postcard images capture it nicely. The guards will be down your throat worse than the MET for standing too close to the art. There was one piece that stood out, it was fruit flies that were stuck onto a canvas...

The Guggenheim museum is truly a unique experince in that it is just a fun place to visit yet it is just so strange - or you can say unique. The works do range from amazing to rather disturbing but that is just one person's opinion. Some of the works, however, are not for the squeamish of heart. Overall, an experince to enjoy even the admission is higher than most other museums

Currently there is an exhibit called Russia!, which draws huge crowds. The museum features Russian art from different ages. There is everything from icons to modern art. Highly recommended. The museum itself is well designed and is easy to maneuver. There are bathrooms on each floor, although there are lines. Consider purchasing admission tickets on-line; otherwise be prepared to wait in line to purchase tickets.

PROS: great exhibits
CONS: long lines, big crowds

The Guggenheim is a quirky Museum. I'm not a real fan of there permanent collection but I do enjoy many of there frequent exhibits. Go to there website from time to time and when you see a new exhibit that sounds interesting that is the time to go. The building itself was designed by Frank Loyd Wright and is interesting to look at. Some people claim it looks like a toilet I'll leave that up to you to decide. They frequently have a line so try to avoid weekends or evenings.

PROS: Some cool exhibits
CONS: Lines, expensive

This is a most unique museum, a brilliant work of architecture by the famous Frank Lloyd Wright...A circular building in which you wind your way up to see all the artwork on display on the ramps themselves.

Famous artists are displayed here, for example, one of my favorites, Vincent Van Gogh one of the impressionists , Picasso, Klee and other modern artists but this isn't a huge museum by any means as part of the visit itself is to experience the building as an artform.

A really great museum for those who don't want to spend an entire day indoors yet want an ususual artsy experience

PROS: Unique museum experience
CONS: none

The Guggenheim itself is and interesting building to look at with its design by FranK Lloyd Wright and its circular shape. The collection is top notch with Chagall, Picasso and Van Gogh among the stars of the collection. They mount impressive exhibits of interesting current art from time to time which makes your visiting experience enhanced.

PROS: Top notch art
CONS: Expensive crowded on weekends

While the building itself is extremely cool, the Guggenheim actually holds very little in the way of artwork. Occasionally they have older exhibits, but most of the time they are ultra-chic post-modernist art that is somewhat unintelligible to those not a fan of it. Fairly pricey as well, if you're in town for only a few days, I'd hit up other museums before this one.

In my book, the Guggenheim is the spot to view modern art. Yes, the MoMA is terrific, but the winding walk of the Guggenheim is a terrific place to feel modern.

The special exhibits are hit or miss (hated Matthew Barney but loved the fashion events like Armani). The museum is to be savored and enjoyed at a leisurely pace.
