Happy birthday to American sculptor Alexander Calder born today in 1898. Enjoy "Red Lily Pads" (Nénuphars rouges) from our collection. Known for his mobiles, Calder embraced the meanings implied by the French term, both referring to a motive and something movable, even quick and unstable, and used it for his works where elements moved by currents of air.

Happy 163rd birthday to our neighbor +Central Park! Frank Lloyd Wright sought to unite people, buildings, and nature in physical and spiritual harmony and allowed the Guggenheim Museum to embrace nature. #‎HBDCentralPark‬

Celebrate #MoonDay with On Kawara’s three “Moon Landing” paintings. These were produced during the time of the Apollo 11 lunar mission in 1969—a period that certainly can be counted among those “where-were-you” times intensified by the media. July 16 was the day of lift-off; July 20 was the day when the shuttle landed; and on July 21, Neil Armstrong set foot on the moon’s surface for the first time. Learn more: http://gu.gg/Bw0j302riV1

In Frank Lloyd Wright's conception of the museum, he wanted the paintings to be bathed in natural light from the great central oculus. Today's photograph is by Guggenheim visitor Romain Hubert. #FrankLloydWrightFridays

We love 8 year old Bodhi Brown's model of the Guggenheim, made from recycled materials found in his home for a New York City landmarks project in his second grade class. After visiting the museum with his family, Bodhi was taken with both the exhibition and the incredible building itself and said, "I could stay here forever!" #FrankLloydWrightFridays

From our archives—traces from Moholy-Nagy's tenure at the school he founded in Chicago, known today as the Institute of Design at the Illinois Institute of Technology. His time as the school's director can be found in brochures from the 1939 and 1941 summer semesters. Read more: http://gu.gg/EGAK302tknN

Pioneering artist and educator László Moholy-Nagy was born on this day in 1895. Moholy-Nagy believed in the potential of art as a vehicle for social transformation, working hand in hand with technology for the betterment of humanity. "Moholy-Nagy: Future Present," is on view through September 7: http://gu.gg/AWOT302ibFg
