Calendar and events page redesigned. The interface for the Guggenheim’s calendar and events page has been redesigned to make sure you don’t miss out on what’s happening at the museum. Highlights include improvements to sorting and searching events, finding activities that are perfect for your family, seeing which exhibitions are on view, and buying tickets to specific event dates.

Guggenheim nominated for Webby. The museum’s new blogging hub, Guggenheim Blogs, was nominated for a Webby Award. Explore the site and see animals Alexander Calder drew to illustrate an edition of Selected Fables, the differences between contemporary and traditional miniature paintings in Pakistan, and more.

New Findings interface. Speaking of Guggenheim Blogs, the popular Findings blog is now housed on the new site. The redesign presents more, higher quality images with each post. Read the latest findings.

Compare global views on privacy. The BMW Guggenheim Lab recently launched Public/Private, an interactive survey that measures how people in cities across the world seek privacy. Answer the questions to see how your city compares to others, and read Fast Company’s praise for the experiment.

Guggenheim Forum explores how design affects everyday life. The most recent Guggenheim Forum, “The Aestheticiziation of Everyday Life,” took place from April 29 to May 3. Four experts examined how design increasingly affects all aspects of our lives, from architecture to how we think.
