If you’ve seen the comedy When in Rome, starring Kristen Bell, then you know this much about the Guggenheim: it’s elevators are big enough to fit a SMART car, and it’s spiraling and colorful rotunda interior will definitely make an impact on you.
Although we can’t vouch for the validity of SMART cars sneaking into this noteworthy modern art museum, a trip to the Guggenheim is definitely worth your time! Stroll through six floors of modern, innovative art by visionaries like Cézanne, Gauguin, Manet, Monet, Picasso, Pissarro, Renoir, and Van Gogh for your culture fix.
Beginning January 24th, you can view the new exhibition “Carrie Mae Weems: Three Decades of Photography and Video.” Her work “contains a desire for universality: while African Americans are typically her primary subjects, Weems wants “people of color to stand for the human multitudes” and for her art to resonate with all audiences.”

Currently on display is a 150 piece collection by Vasily Kandinsky, mostly created in the later part of his life in Paris.
The museum says “instead of his characteristic primary colors, Kandinsky favored softer, pastel hues—pink, violet, turquoise, and gold—reminiscent of the colors of his Russian origins. He also increasingly experimented with materials, such as combining sand with pigment. While Kandinsky found that his art had affinities with Surrealism and other abstract movements in Paris, he never fully immersed himself in the city’s artistic environment.”
Don’t be like Kandinsky and miss out on what the art scene in New York has to offer!
If you want to take a piece home with you, it’s not that hard. The Guggenheim’s store exceeds the expectations of a major tourist attraction with gifts from iPhone cases to blankets to legitimate editions of artists’ work. So modern, so vibrant, so utterly cool!
