On May 5th and 6th, the Guggenheim will participate—along with 40 historic buildings, icons and landmarks in New York City—in Partners in Preservation, a program from the National Trust for Historic Preservation. Their aim is to raise awareness of the importance of historic places, and currently the museum has the opportunity to receive a $250,000 grant from them, which they would put towards the historic restoration of the Frank Lloyd Wright-designed front doors.

To find out more about their open house activities (which are focused around architecture tours), check out their itinerary here; and check out the below video, where they discuss the need for door restoration. And did you know that Frank Lloyd Wright referred to the building "as a continuation of the street grid, but going up into the spiral"?
