Visitors Invited to Enjoy Free Admission on Select Saturdays Starting on May 1
The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum presents Saturday on the House, an opportunity for visitors to enjoy free admission all day to the Guggenheim on select Saturdays. Upcoming dates for Saturday on the House are May 1, June 5, July 3, August 7, September 4, October 23, November 6, and December 4.
Saturday on the House, with the support of The Macallan Scotch Whisky, has been created to make art available to a wider public and engage a variety of audiences, two objectives of the museum’s diversity, equity, access, and inclusion plan. Visitors are invited to experience all of the exhibitions on view each Saturday that the program is offered. For the inaugural Saturday on the House, May 1, the exhibitions that will be open are Off the Record, featuring 13 artists whose work questions and challenges dominant narratives in mainstream documentation; Christian Nyampeta: Sometimes It Was Beautiful, a solo site-specific installation in the rotunda; A Year with Children 2021, a showcase of artworks made by students participating in the museum’s arts education program Learning Through Art during its fiftieth year; Away from the Easel: Jackson Pollock’s Mural, a presentation dedicated to Mural, a work that has not been shown in New York in more than 20 years; and Knotted, Torn, Scattered: Sculpture after Abstract Expressionism, sculptural work by artists who question and expand the legacy of Abstract Expressionism.
Capacity is limited and timed tickets must be reserved in advance. Visitors are invited to sign up to receive email notifications when tickets are released.
About The Macallan
Founded in 1824, The Macallan is renowned worldwide for its single malt whiskies. Their quality and distinctive character reveal the uncompromised excellence pursued by The Macallan since it was established by Alexander Reid, on a plateau above the River Spey in northeast Scotland. In 2018, The Macallan opened a new chapter in its history with the launch of its award-winning Speyside distillery. Designed by internationally acclaimed architects to promote sustainability, the building takes inspiration from the surrounding ancient Scottish hills. It stands nearby Easter Elchies House, the Highland manor built in 1700, which is The Macallan’s spiritual home and remains the heartbeat of The Macallan’s beautiful 485-acre estate. Through an auction of one of the thirteen original bottles of the Macallan Anecdotes of Ages Collection, the Macallan has raised funds to support Saturday on the House.
