On October 21, 1959, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum opened in New York City. The museum's building was designed by legendary American architect Frank Lloyd Wright. To celebrate this event, the National Postal Museum has created this mini-exhibit highlighting different postage stamps with connections to the Guggenheim Museum and Frank Lloyd Wright.
