Refreshing the Guggenheim’s Tribute to Frank Lloyd Wright

The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum is a staple of New York City culture and a marvel of modern architecture. Visitors from around the world travel to New York with the Guggenheim high on their list of must-see attractions.

Equally fascinating as its engaging art exhibitions is the story behind the construction of the Guggenheim itself, best told on the museum’s website:

“In June 1943, Frank Lloyd Wright received a letter from Hilla Rebay, the art advisor to Solomon R. Guggenheim, asking the architect to design a new building to house Guggenheim’s four-year-old Museum of Non-Objective Painting. The project evolved into a complex struggle pitting the architect against his clients, city officials, the art world, and public opinion. Both Guggenheim and Wright would die before the building’s 1959 completion. The resultant achievement, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, testifies not only to Wright’s architectural genius, but to the adventurous spirit that characterized its founders.”

Undoubtedly Wright’s most recognized masterpiece, the Guggenheim pays tribute to its architectural father with A Long-Awaited Tribute: Frank Lloyd Wright’s Usonian House and Pavilion.

Duggal Visual Solutions had the honor of being entrusted by the Guggenheim to help refresh the permanent exhibition, which was originally installed in 2012, to keep the Wright archives vibrant, engaging, and timeless. A Long-Awaited Tribute: Frank Lloyd Wright’s Usonian House and Pavilion is a historically significant New York experience, chronicling for museumgoers and Guggenheim supporters the creative process behind what has become a Fifth Avenue icon.
