Film in Bellingham explores Frank Lloyd Wright’s Guggenheim Museum

It is said that the greatest work of the Guggenheim Museum collection is the building itself. What makes it an architectural and cultural icon? How did architect Frank Lloyd Wright conceive of the innovative and stunning ideas that changed the relationship between people and art?

Architectural historian Neil Levine presents a provocative tour of the building in the film “Frank Lloyd Wright’s Guggenheim Museum,” at 7 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 11, at Whatcom Museum’s Old City Hall, 121 Prospect St.

The event, hosted by the Northwest American Institute of Architects, is free for musem members, with a $3 suggested donation for nonmembers.
