New York City Guggenheim Museum
The Guggenheim Museum was created by famous United States architect, Frank Lloyd Wright, and it was built between 1956 and 1959. Frank Lloyd Wright died at about the time the first part of the museum construction was completed. The museum has undergone revisions and additions since 1959.
The metal sculptures that appear in four of the photographs were part of the "David Smith -- A Centennial" exhibition that took place at the New York City Guggenheim February 3 to May 14, 2006. Widely considered the greatest sculptor of his generation, David Smith (1906–1965) created some of the most iconic works of the 20th century. Marked by the use of industrial materials, especially welded metals, and the integration of open space, Smith's three-dimensional version of Abstract Expressionism revolutionized the art of sculpture in the U.S. and around the world.
You can read more about its history at New York City Guggenheim Museum. It is interesting to note that David Smith's "Sentinel" Series was started in 1956 and his most famous series, "Cubi," was undertaken between 1961 and 1965.
