what NY socialites do in 10021

A New York Socialite is brought up to be cultured, educated and to love and be passionate about the arts. There is no greater appreciation than support and patronage of museums. While it does not always require a wing be named after a socialite family, love of art can be expressed in a multitude of ways. This blog is an expression for the love of art in New York Museums. You can even call it a passion.

Was New Guggenheim Museum new york cancelled?

Was the New Guggenheim Museum New Nork by Frank Gehry cancelled?
This Question is about a plan of "New Guggenheim Museum New York" which designd by Frank Gehry in lower Manhattan.

Plans are at best on "hiatus" since 9-11. That may be just a convenient reason. The projected costs were such that there was no way it could earn its keep.

the Metropolitan Museum of Art vs Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum vs the museum of modern art (MoMa)?

which which is better for architecture and sculptures?
any other museums/galleries in New York?

I don’t think the Guggenheim shows sculpture and you are not clear whether you mean the architecture of the place or shows elements of architecture. While the Guggenheim is striking as a building, like some other Wright buildings it is limiting in carrying out the purpose for which it was intended – in this case it lacks variety in its display spaces.

Width of the Guggenheim Museum ?

Does anybody know the approximate width of the main spiral of the Guggenheim Museum?
What is the width of the Guggenheim Museum in New York?

Using Google Maps with the satellite view, the round exterior at the south end of the museum at 1071 – 5th Avenue in New York City has a diameter of approximately 140 feet. According to the museum interior map at the source link I posted below, this round exterior encloses the large spiral ramp inside the museum.
The dimensions of the entire building is approximately 230 feet by 150 feet.

Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, an amazing organic plan resembling a living organism, reflecting and enhancing it?


Yes, but I was more impressed by Puppy, a sculpture of a huge dog made of flowers which is just in front the Guggen in Bilbao.

You can see a phot of it at:

Who have already visited guggenheim museum? In the entrance, on the floor there is a great medal?

Has a word written there which seems to be Greek: "APIΣTOФANHΣ". Who knows their translation?
Thank you very much!!!

Maybe …

"Let each man exercise the art he knows"…
(Aristophanes)

(or)

"Archeseum" (based on an idea of Solomon G. …)

Good luck !

Slanted interior wall at the Guggenheim museum?

Are the walls slanted in the same direction as the exterior wall to allow better viewing perspective of the painting and lighting?

I don’t recall noticing that the walls in the Guggenheim are slanted only inclined as you walk up the circular ramp

The Sweeney Decade: Acquisitions at the 1959 Inaugural

"Eye to Eye: The Sweeney Decade
Monday, July 27 @ 6:30 p.m.
Join us for a private, guided tour exploring The Sweeney Decade: Acquisitions at the 1959 Inaugural, celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Guggenheim Museum. Limit 25 per tour.

The New York School critic and historian Irving Sandler (b. 1925, New York), in conversation with Guggenheim curator Tracey Bashkoff, reflects on the world of young European and American abstractionists collected by the Guggenheim in the 1950s.

Sorry, but I tried looking something up on Youtube but the film is exclusive to the Guggenheim.

An idea of a non architectet(artist, economist, architecture theorist)about guggenheim museum?


Criticism of the New York Guggenheim Museum focused on the idea that it overshadows the artworks displayed in it and that it is particularly difficult to properly hang paintings in the shallow windowless exhibition niches which surround the central spiral. Although the rotunda is generously lit by a large skylight, the niches are heavily shadowed by the walkway itself, leaving the art to be lit largely by artificial light. The walls of the niches are neither vertical nor flat (most are gently concave) meaning that the canvasses have to be mounted in a special and perhaps awkard way in relation to the wall’s surface. The limited space within the niches means that sculptures are generally relegated to plinths amid the main spiral walkway itself. Before its opening, twenty-one artists signed a letter protesting the display of their work in such a space

what are interesting facts about the guggenheim museum in ny?

any facts will be helpful but facts about when it was built and how it was built would be the best if you know any. thanks

"The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum (often referred to as "The Guggenheim") is a well-known museum located on the Upper East Side of Manhattan in New York City, United States. It is the permanent home to a renowned collection of Impressionist, Post-Impressionist, early Modern, and contemporary art and also features special exhibitions throughout the year. Designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, it is one of the 20th century’s most important architectural landmarks.

The museum opened on October 21, 1959, and was the second museum opened by the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation. It recently underwent an extensive, three-year renovation."

This is one of the most interesting buildings in NYC in my opinion. You should really check out some information on it on your own, and, if you can, visit!
Some of the most interesting art is displayed here, making it a very important hotspot for students, educators, and artists alike. Cai Quo Quang had an amazing show here in which he suspended VW cars in the open space in the middle.

guggenheim museum taking pictures?

I was just wondering is it possible to take pictures inside the guggenheim museum in New York city?

I’ve seen photos of people taking pictures inside and others with cameras too, but I read on the site that it is not permitted..
So I don’t want to bring my heavy dslr there and not be able to take any pictures..

As Jus_Ben mentioned, to write to them. Most museums allow photography as long as no flash is used. The photos can only be for personal use and may not be published in anyway.

Most private featured shows with current artists, do not allow for their artwork to be photographed. But many artists believe that the best way to perpetuate art is to allow them to be studied and recorded. It is possible that some areas of the museum is allowed to be photographed. I know the Met and MOMA allow it most areas, but I haven’t been to the Guggenheim in a long time and don’t recall their policies.

Contact them, and find out for certain.

Can I take my Segway into the Guggenheim Museum?

I’m suffering from gout, and I think what would be an easy stroll for most will be too much for me.

Honestly… where are you going to park the damn thing???? If you can find a parking spot for it then yes. But come on… really a Segway.

How would you describe the neighborhood of the Guggenheim Museum (on 89th street and 5th ave) in Manhattan?

How would you describe the neighborhood

Since you asked about the neighborhood of 89th and Fifth and not the entire Upper East Side, I’ll answer the question with that in mind. This section of the Upper East Side is called Carnegie Hill. Andrew Carnegie built his mansion here, at 91st. and Fifth Ave in 1897. The house is open to the public, because it is now home to the Cooper-Hewitt Museum. I’d highly recommend a visit there.

Carnegie Hill is home to some of the most expensive real estate in the world. Living in this neighborhood is beyond the means of most people. But visiting it is open to everyone. In addition to the many museums that line Fifth Avenue, there is also great architecture along Fifth, Madison and Park, not to mention the many cross streets in the 80′s and low 90′s. Also, Central Park is the western border of Carnegie Hill, and this part of the park offers The Reservoir, now named the Jacqueline Kennedy Onasis Reservoir. Jackie O lived in Carnegie Hill too, at 86th St. and Fifth Avenue.

Carnegie Hill is one of the most impressive and interesting neighborhoods in all of New York. A visit there is an absolute must.

P.S. Many people on Y/A copy their answers from another source, and paste them on here and pass them off as their own. A tell tale sign is when they say that they went to the opening of a movie a "few weeks ago" when that movie actually opened four years ago!

what would an empiricist say about the Guggenheim museum in bilbao?

^
could you also tell me what a relativist would say about the Gug museum in Bilbao.

Thanks guys!
Please give me a specific example like a comment on the forms of the building or something.

What would ANYBODY say!!

Is it worthy to go to Bilbao to visit the Guggenheim Museum? Why?

Is it worthy just the building or the expose art is very valuable?

Yes, it’s a really great exhibition space, however, there’s nothing else in Bilbao to see.

When will the NYC’s Guggenheim museum be free of that scaffolding?

I mean, anybody knows when will they finish the exterior restoration?

My friend, the restoriation of the outside facede of the Guggenheim Museum should be completed in spring of 2008. The exterior restoration is part of $29 million restoration project to the 46 year building.

Good luck

How Many Hours For The Guggenheim Museum NY?

Visiting the city next week, just wondering how many hours I’ll be needing to look around the Guggenheim? Thanks.

The Guggenheim is an odd museum.

There is only a very small permanent collection. The Guggenheim brings in lots of special exhibits. They are the artwork put into the spiral part of the museum, which is the most interesting part.

What you usually do it start at the bottom of the ramp and go up slowly, looking at the artwork as you go up. How long it takes depends very much on what the exhibit is about.

Many people never even go into the permanent collection which is off to the side on the bottom floor, and is actually pretty cool.

However, this is not a very big museum in the end. It shouldn’t take you more than a couple of hours to see this museum.

Some of the special exhibits are kind of dopey, to tell the truth. But the museum’s architecture is so cool that it’s worth visiting there if you’ve never been there at all.

Have you ever been to the Guggenheim Museum in New York?

Have you ever been to the Guggenheim Museum in New York? If so, describe your visit including how old you were and what you thought of the experience. If not, would you like to visit it someday? Explain why.

I have been there. Quite honestly, I wasn’t a big fan. I personally prefer the kind of art in the Metropolitan Museum, but again, that’s personal preference. You might love it. I was around 21 when I visited, give or take a year.

What would be awesome is taking that place on rollerblades…
