Well, the day has finally arrived members of the media were invited to the official groundbreaking to kick off the start of the major Core Project of the Museum’s Master Plan, designed by celebrated architect  Frank Gehry.

This $196 million expansion project is going to take a few years and it’s part of a $525 million fundraising campaign to completely revamp the Museum’s interior, enhance programming and add to the endowment.  Said Gehry: “When it’s done, people coming to this museum will have an experience that’s as big as Bilbao.”

I’ve never been to the Guggenheim I’m willing to wait.
