AFG Art Society - A Presentation "Temple of the Spirit" By Julie Keenan 09.06.2017

Temple of the Spirit The Solomon R Guggenheim Museum New York

The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum New York (often referred to as "The Guggenheim") is the permanent home to a renowned collection of some of the most avant-garde art of the late 19th to mid 20th Century. It is also considered to be one of the most important architectural landmarks of its time and was conceived as a "temple of the spirit".

AFG Art Society member Julie Keenan visited there in April and her talk on Friday 9th June explored the original vision the wealthy mining industrialist Solomon Guggenheim had for his art collecting as well as the current "Visionaries" exhibition there which features works by such iconic artists as Cezanne, Chagall, Kandinsky, Klee, Picasso and Pollock.

Julie said the visit was trully amazing, but spritual......? 
Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the presentation.  For more information please follow the links:
