Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum seeks Partners in Preservation grant to restore Frank Lloyd Wright front doors

. May 5, 2012 . 0 Comments

The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum is one of 40 historic buildings, icons, and landmarks in New York City selected to participate in Partners in Preservation, a program from American Express and the National Trust for Historic Preservation to raise awareness of the importance of historic places. Each year at the Guggenheim, more than 1.3 million visitors enter and exit through our doors to behold Frank Lloyd Wright’s spiraling architecture. After years of constant use, the single revolving door and adjacent double doors of the museum require immediate attention. Through Partners in Preservation, the Guggenheim has the opportunity to receive a $250,000 grant for historic restoration of the Frank Lloyd Wright–designed front doors based on popular vote. With your help, we can secure the crucial funds to restore the doors and surrounding detail to Frank Lloyd Wright’s original design.

Vote up to once a day for the Guggenheim on Facebook or PartnersinPreservation.com through May 21 to help restore the Frank Lloyd Wright–designed doors. Must be 13 years of age or older.
