New Release: Frank Lloyd Wright’s Guggenheim Museum DVD

Frank Lloyd Wright's Guggenheim Museum movie sceneMicrocinema released independent film Frank Lloyd Wright’s Guggenheim Museum, a documentary on you-know-what, on DVD on Feb. 22, 2011.

To house Solomon Guggenheim’s collection of modern art, Frank Lloyd Wright envisioned a powerful, spatial experience, one that would revolutionize the relationship between people and art. The result, the iconic Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, which opened in New York in 1959, utilized stunning innovation in form and Wright’s concept of organic architecture to radically transform the museum experience.

It has often been said that the greatest work in the collection of the Guggenheim Museum is the building itself. What makes the Guggenheim an architectural and cultural icon? How did Wright conceive of and develop his ideas for the building’s coiling ramp and magnificent rotunda? And how does it continue to challenge our collective understanding of art museums even into the 21st century? Neil Levine, architectural historian and professor at Harvard University, hosts this documentary, an engaging tour of the building and its history.

No bonus features are on the movie’s DVD, which carries a list price of $25.

This is the third entry in Microcinema’s series of the heralded architect. The company has previously release Frank Lloyd Wright’s Fallingwater DVD and Frank Lloyd Wright’s Home and Studio DVD, both of which are still available.
