Guggenheim (1071 5th Avenue at 89th Street)
$22, $18/students & seniors, free/kids under 12
Bold biomorphic and geometric forms. lots of rainbows and a fascinating back-story of an under-recognized female artist make this an excellent exhibition for all ages. She forbad her pioneering works to be displayed until 20 years after her death, ideally in a spiral temple similar to the current stunning setting. Talk about her ouija board like creative spiritualism, try to guess the ages protrayed in each of the monumental The Ten Largest and pick up an engaging free Family Activity Guide.
