Simple Pleasures

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.

Over the past few months, many people have come to appreciate life’s “simple pleasures”: family, friends, a good meal, a favorite song, a walk in the park. As we reviewed our collections, we noticed that many artists have also relished these small, precious moments.

We invite you to consider the simple pleasures you have found solace in, and share your response (actually or metaphorically) created in any medium. Post your creation using #GuggenheimTogether by October 21 for a chance to have your work featured.
