This shot shows the spiral interior of the Guggenheim Museum in New York City. The iconic Upper East Side museum was designed by celebrated architect Frand Lloyd Wright and holds one of America’s greatest collections of modern art. Major shows are exhbited in the main spiral, an atrium with a single, circular ramp that visitors walk along while viewing art works. The ramp gradually ascends nearly ten floors high. At the time this photo was taken, a retrospective of American pop artist James Rosenquist was being held. The Guggenheim’s permanent collection is shown in an adjacent wing.
