A Visit to the Guggenheim

We recently took a trip into Manhattan to visit the Guggenheim Museum. They were having an exhibit of black and white works by Pablo Picasso, and we were all excited to see it! Here are some photos of our visit and sketches that we created while there.

Thank you to the Guggenheim for still printing postcards of current exhibitions! A lot of the museum shops have turned into design oriented gift shops that have nothing to do with the art being shown. A postcard is the perfect memento, especially for kids, without having to purchase a full sized catalog.

The museum is also a chance to discuss Frank Lloyd Wright and his brilliant architecture! If you get the chance to visit, remember to take the elevator to the top floor, and walk the galleries by descending. And locals, our library has a museum pass which you can borrow for free admission!

Thanks for sharing. We're going to be in NY in a couple of weeks, and I'm planning to visit the Matisse exhibit at the Metropolitan. Excited - love the Met, love Matisse. I'll need a whole day there!

How did you like this Picasso exhibit overall? It looks interesting, but I'm not a big fan of the Guggenheim. The last time we were there they had a nice exhibit of Kandinsky paintings but the rest of the basic collection didn't wow me.
