I suppose not meeting one's heroes is often good advice, but in this instance, I bet it was a missed opportunity. Learning of Frank Lloyd Wright - the man - second hand did not prepare one for meeting him face to face. I have heard and read all my life how horrible he was from those who never met him, or just crossed his path. I have also heard from many of the people who knew him well and thought very highly of him. I'm sure I would have agreed with the latter group. I regret the missed opportunities I had in my youth, living as close as I did to Taliesin, driving through Phoenix in December 1957 when he was at T-West, that I didn't take the chance to meet him.

At the Guggenheim, the celebrities "made their way up the spiral ramp...."

While that claustrophobic little elevator is not fun to ride, walking down the ramp should still be the path to follow.
