Our first museum in NYC is Guggenheim. We get to this place by subway and thru the Central Park.
An internationally renowned art museum and one of the most significant architectural icons of the 20th century, the Guggenheim Museum in New York is at once a vital cultural center, an educational institution, and the heart of an international network of museums. Visitors can experience special exhibitions of modern and contemporary art, lectures by artists and critics, performances and film screenings, classes for teens and adults, and daily tours of the galleries led by museum educators. Founded on a collection of early modern masterpieces, the Guggenheim Museum today is an ever-evolving institution devoted to the art of the 20th century and beyond.

In the museum I was looking for works for my primary research of the FMP with a title “Eclecticism”.
When I found some works, that relate to my topic , I drew sketches and wrote information about painting and why I chose them in my sketchbook. I found enough material for my research and fortunately there were works in eclectic style.
The second museum that we visited was The MET Fith Avenue. The exhibition, that I like the most is “Reimagining Modernism 1900-1950”.
Here I also found a good amount of material and fill my sketchbook with drawings and booklets.
After museums we have had a free time till the end of the day. Firstly me and Vicky went to eat in Bluestone Lane Cafe. Toads with avocado and salmon were so tasty.
After we went to Saks Shopping Mall and I was looking for brands and collections in eclectic style, so I can use them for my secondary research.
I found Gucci’s variegated collection with rainbow colors sweaters and motley floral prints, colorful zigzag and shining colorful stripes of Missoni and Proenza Schouler’ collection in multicolor patterns in horizontal and vertical stripes.
At the evening we visited Time Square. All big screens with advertising remind me eclecticism, because there were prints in different style with multicolor background and all the colors were bright and vivid.
