Guggenheim Expansion To Continue Unabated, Cash Required

gugg-eats-earth.jpgThis just in: an inspirational image Thomas Krens has on his office wall, as The Guggenheim continues its global expansion. Title: Think Big!!

Branding museums and building them all over the world creates a global institution, space, and collection. What I am tracking in this story is how works in the collection, and exhibitions mounted, are affected by the need to support them. In short, the need to bring in huge worldwide crowds affects what's in the museums. Whatever the outcome, The Guggenheim will have a global infrastructure in place, and some new stuff will come out of it. I applaud Mr. Krens for having a big, unique vision.

But the drama getting there: yawn.
