Kandinsky, Frank Lloyd Wright, Italian Futurism @ the Guggenheim Museum

**  RSVP 'yes' if you are CERTAIN you can join us, otherwise DO NOTHING. **

Saturday evening (5:45 ~ 7:45pm) is Pay What You Wish at the Guggenheim Museum.  We will meet at 5pm so that we can stand in line together.  Please be on time because we won't be waiting for latecomers.

Current exhibitions include:

Kandinsky in Paris, 1934–1944

This exhibition examines work Vasily Kandinsky produced in the last 11 years of his life, when he settled in the Parisian suburb Neuilly-sur-Seine.

Italian Futurism, 1909–1944: Reconstructing the Universe

The first comprehensive overview of Italian Futurism to be presented in the United States, this multidisciplinary exhibition examines the historical sweep of the movement from its inception with F. T. Marinetti’s Futurist manifesto in 1909 through its demise at the end of World War II.

A Long-Awaited Tribute: Frank Lloyd Wright's Usonian House and Pavilion

This presentation, comprised of selected materials from the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum Archives, pays homage to the first Frank Lloyd Wright–designed structures in New York City.

Carrie Mae Weems: Three Decades of Photography and Video

Carrie Mae Weems is a socially motivated artist whose works invite contemplation of race, gender, and class. The exhibition traces the evolution of Weems’s career over the last 30 years and includes the groundbreaking Kitchen Table Series (1990) as well as written texts, audio recordings, and videos.

Portions of the Thannhauser Collection

Masterpieces by such artists as Paul Cézanne, Paul Gauguin, Edouard Manet, Claude Monet, Pablo Picasso, Camille Pissarro, Pierre Auguste Renoir, and Vincent van Gogh.

How to get there:  By subway, take the 4, 5, or 6 train to 86th Street. Walk west on 86th Street, turn right at 5th Avenue and proceed north to 88th Street.

    Thanks Sabrina and Ro for hosting this event. It was a lot of fun. Now that I had some time to digest what I viewed at the Guggenheim. I think the Carrie Mae's Photography exhibit was my favorite. We were able to examine decades of her work through photography and videos in less than couple hours. At times, the captions within the photo was intense bringing forth extreme emotions. As always, it was great to see everyone.

    The Italian futurist works and Carrie Mae Weems exhibition were my favorite. Thanks for hosting this, Sabrina. The company was great; got to know a lot of nice members whom I haven't met before. I just wish I had more time to look at the art :-).

      I wish there were more of Kandinsky's work on display and Frank Lloyd Wright's exhibition not tucked in a secret little basement, but I wouldn't want to be anywhere else on such a nice day meeting up with friends, both old and new. :)

    Smh I had no idea the line would be this crazy. In line right Meet you guys in there.

    March 15, 2014

    • Sabrina

      Sam. There are too many people in the museum. If you have a problem finding us, please don't worry and enjoy your stay.

      March 15, 2014

  • Sabrina

    We are planning to go to the top of the museum and spiral down. So, if you are not with us and in line, look for us up there when you are in. Thanks.

    March 15, 2014

    Just got in line. I'm past the corner.

    March 15, 2014

  • Ro

    It will be in the 50s when we line up outside the museum today at 5pm :). As Sabrina said in the email remember to get there at *5pm* (not 5:15, 5:30, etc...) so you can stand on the line with us. It would be awkward and pretty un-cool to join us late and cut all the people that have been standing on the line behind us...So if you get there late please go to the back of the line and find us inside the museum. Thanks

    March 15, 2014

    • Ro

      So please plan ahead to make sure you get there on time.

      March 15, 2014

    • Nicole

      I'm stuck in traffic and will likely get there after you guys. Will look for you in the museum.

    I made a reservation for The Penrose at 8:30pm for 10 ppl since I know not everyone will stay for dinner after the museum. The Penrose is a modern Irish/American gastropub, and they have great crispy oyster sliders and burgers among other delish offerings. Drinks-wise they have a good selection of whisky, beer, and cocktails. I chose it because it's St. Patty's weekend but I wanted to avoid the usual St. Patty's crowds and this is a more grown-up pub ;). Send me a msg if you want to join for dinner.

      Oh no... I didn't know about this soon enuf. I wanna go too... Wait listed now

      March 15, 2014

    • Ro

      Bess I made this comment a week ago and also put up a separate event for it lol. You won't always get a personal heads up, y'know ;P lol. But yeah I'm still waiting for the reservationist to respond back. But if she doesn't get back to me or doesn't approve it maybe you and others on the waitlist can still get a table there. It's a good-sized place but it's also Sat night. If that doesn't work out there are other options nearby :).
