NEW YORK – The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in Manhattan uncoiled Wednesday, releasing the lifeless corpse of a smaller, weaker cultural institution onto 5th Avenue. The Center for Women in American Government, a nonprofit foundation that had also dwelled in the Upper East Side habitat, was hunted and killed by the powerful constriction of the Guggenheim.
Fully extended, the full-grown Guggenheim measures about two city blocks long, and can attack institutions that have an annual fund of up to $850,000. The Guggenheim Museum is one of the area’s largest predators to small cultural centers, along with the fearsome Metropolitan Museum of Art.
The grisly scene momentarily blocked New York City traffic until the body was swallowed whole, and, fully engorged, the Guggenheim returned to its normal state.
