Frank Lloyd Wright’s Birthday Celebration at the Guggenheim
June 8, 2017
Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum
Celebrate the 150th birthday of Frank Lloyd Wright through a series of activities related to the architect’s masterpiece: The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum.
The celebration kicks off at the museum on Thursday, June 8—Wright’s birthday—with a reduced admission of $1.50. The Guggenheim’s newly renovated Cafe 3 will feature large-scale, rarely seen photographs of the museum during its construction and will add a special birthday cupcake to the day’s menu. At noon Ashley Mendelsohn, Curatorial Assistant of Architecture and Digital Initiatives, will lead a special architectural tour of the Wright-designed building. Best of all, an actor-historian portraying Frank Lloyd Wright will be on site for photographs and a special history lesson.
