What was your favorite part about volunteering at the Guggenheim? My favorite part was being there during installation, when the exhibitions are taken down and put up. I liked becoming part of the installation—not that I did the work! But it was always very exciting.

Did you attend the museum opening in 1959? I attended opening weekend. It was very crowded. There was an air of excitement. It was a new happening. Nobody had been to a museum and walked around a circle (before)!

How does the Frank Lloyd Wright’s design inspire you? It inspires me because the first thing is it is different. Is that good or bad? You look again, it’s not only different, it’s attractive. The museum struck a new note in art presentation.

A big shout out to all our amazing volunteers! The museum relies on the dedication and commitment of volunteers who help in a multitude of ways. Learn more: #InternationalVolunteerDay
