The Museum Archives actively acquires materials related to the history of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation and its Museum in New York. Currently, collections from the 1950s, 1960s, 1970s, and 1980s are prioritized. At this time, the Museum Archives can only accept physical collections, not digital images or reproductions.
Recently acquired highlights are seen above. Unless otherwise noted, donations are anonymous.
The Guggenheim Library welcomes gifts and donations. Due to limited space, all gifts and donations are reviewed and acceptance depends on the criteria outlined in the library’s collection development policy, which is available upon request.
