Guggenheim Circle 600 €*

*300 € for those under 40

The Guggenheim Circle connects art enthusiasts from all over Italy: a group characterized by a shared passion and a desire to explore contemporary artistic trends. Members participate in a rich program of meetings, trips and conferences, and gather every year in June at a special evening dinner on the roof terrace of the museum.
The Circle has played a significant role in the acquisition of new works that have enriched the collections of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation. Since 2006, these include a watercolor painting by Lucio Fontana, an ink on paper work by David Smith, a pen drawing on paper by Dadamaino, a ‘frottage’ by Roland Penrose, a watercolor painting by Rita Kernn-Larsen, and photographs by Berenice Abbott. In 2010, the Circle was involved in the important campaign for the acquisition of a pair of earrings by Yves Tanguy, belonging to Peggy Guggenheim.

Admittance to the Guggenheim Circle is upon personal invitation by an existing member or by the museum itself.
