Guggenheim Together - Around the Table
Guggenheim Together - Around the Table

Around the Table

The global constellation of Guggenheim museums believes that making art and sharing it helps us find significance in our individual experiences, while viewing art by others enables us to look at the world from different perspectives.

The table is often the heart of the home and social sphere. It is where meals are shared, memories are made, families and friends gather, traditions are born, and stories unfold. Over the past few months, we have been spending more time around our tables than usual.

We invite you to consider what happens around your own table (actually or metaphorically) – in any medium and to post your response using the hashtag #GuggenheimTogether by August 4th for the chance to have your work featured!
