Designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, the Guggenheim Museum in New York City is as much a work of art as the exhibitions contained within it. The cylindrical building sits apart from the surrounding conventional cityscape of Fifth Avenue. The architecture of the building is internationally reputed, but it wasn't the only reason we anticipated visiting it. The Guggenheim has amazing contemporary art, and after going to several, well, 'stuffy' museums it was refreshing to visit one whose collection has been described as a constant "work in progress".

Making our way down the spiralling interior, we came across an interesting display featuring photos of realistic scenes recreated with dolls. It turned out the artist, Sarah Anne Johnson, happens to be from our home town of Winnipeg.

Mina was excited to see a painting from Francesco Clemente in person, as he has been one of her favourite artists since Jr. High. We also recognized some pieces from, French artist, Annette Messager. We were first introduced to her work at a special exhibit at the Mori Art Museum during our trip to Tokyo, and found her installations to be odd yet intriguing.

I'll stop talking about various artists, since you'd be better off just making a trip to the museum if you're in the NYC area. -Alex
