The Peggy Guggenheim Collection believes that art and beauty must not stop. While the museum remains closed, the Peggy Guggenheim Collection carries out its mission on social media platforms to share content and history to a wider and diverse art-loving public now at home.
In this challenging moment, when we all must act responsibly and stay at home, the museum continues as an online community and looks forward to returning to normal as soon as possible.Through new weekly e-news and detailed social media programs, the museum strengthens its commitment to bring art into the homes of those who appreciate it and of those who are beginning to enjoy it. Now more than ever we need beauty. At a distance, Palazzo Venier dei Leoni, which was Peggy Guggenheim’s home for thirty years, reopens. The original hashtag #IoRestoaCasa is joined by #LArteResiste, #MySweetQuarantine—the social media project launched by the writer and influencer Paolo Stella which includes our Art Talks—and #MuseumFromHome—the international hashtag shared by many museums around the world. On a weekly basis the Peggy Guggenheim Collection will update its public via a newsletter that anyone can subscribe to. The museum remains active seven days a week on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and LinkedIn. Scheduled content includes virtual presentations about masterpieces in the collection, short tutorials that bring Kids Day to our youngest visitors on Sundays at 3pm—they follow the same schedule as when the museum was open to the public—podcasts on the life of Peggy Guggenheim, and Art Quizzes that playfully test knowledge of art history.
