Since February 18, 2009 166,810 visitors have now enjoyed Masterpieces of Futurism at the Peggy Guggenheim Collection, an exhibition curated by Philip Rylands for the centenary of Italian Futurism this year. The exhibition, which is sponsored by the Regione del Veneto, presents 36 paintings, sculptures and drawings by the five artists who signed the Manifestoes of Futurist Painting: Balla, Boccioni, Carrà, Russolo, and Severini, as well as by others in the movement: Rosai, Sironi and Soffici. Through September 20, 2009 the museum is hosting Robert Rauschenberg: Gluts, 40 lyrical sculptures by the great American artist who died in 2008, assembled from scrap metal such as street signs, automobile parts, and other found metal.

Every Sunday at 12.00 noon, in the shadow of a gothic tower by Belgian artist Wim Delvoye, museum visitors are offered complimentary spritzer aperitifs courtesy of APEROL, member of Intrapresæ Guggenheim Collection. Delvoye’s 30-foot steel Torre was created exclusively for the Peggy Guggenheim Collection, and will be on view through November 22, 2009.

The summer program continues with the concert on August 26, traditionally organized for Peggy Guggenheim’s birthday. This is reserved for museum members. Pianist Alfonso Alberti has prepared a program of music as a tribute to Peggy Guggenheim, to her collection, as well as to the late Robert Rauschenberg.

Kids Day, as free workshops for children ages 4 to 10, will pause for a brief rest during the month of August, and will resume on September 6, from 15.00 to 16.30.

Free guided visits of the Robert Rauschenberg: Gluts temporary exhibition continue through the month every day at 15.30.

Opening October 10, 2009, the exhibition Prendergast in Italy at the Peggy Guggenheim Collection will offer you the chance to glimpse an unspoiled late 19th century Venice through the art of the great American Post-Impressionist Maurice Prendergast.
