On #ThisDayinHistory 1959, New York City’s new @Guggenheim Museum, home to one of the world’ s top collections of contemporary art, opened on 5th avenue’s Museum Mile #AceHistoryNews – @AceHist oryNews

#AceHistoryNews – Oct.21: Mining tycoon Solomon R. Guggenheim began collecting art seriously when he retired in the 1930s and he displayed his purchases for the first time in 1939 in a former car showroom #AceHistoryDesk reports

Within a few years, the collection had outgrown its small space….And so, in 1943, architect Frank Lloyd Wright was contacted and tasked with designing not just a museum, but a “temple of spirit,” where people would learn to see art in a new way………….Over the next 16 years, until his death six months before the museum opened, Wright worked to bring his unique vision to life…………..Wright’s groundbreaking design drew criticism as well as admiration……Some felt the oddly-shaped building didn’t complement the artwork……They complained the museum was less about art and more about Frank Lloyd Wright……………On the flip side, many others thought the architect had achieved his goal: a museum where building and art work together to create “an uninterrupted, beautiful symphony.” #AceHistoryDesk reports are provided by Sterling Publishing & Media News
