In celebration of the restoration and as a tribute to Mr. Lewis, the Foundation commissioned artist Jenny Holzer to create a site-specific light projection entitled For the Guggenheim for the facade of the newly restored museum. Her transformative work will cast large-scale texts—comprising the artist’s own writings and poems—directly onto Frank Lloyd Wright’s curving architecture.
