Maybe in the wrong sub-forum, sorry...

So I was in New-York (first trip, from France - NY is a very interesting and beautiful town), and my group (I was with an organized tour) was visiting the Guggenheim Museum.
I discovered that there was a "Thannhauser Collection".

http://www.guggenheim.org/new-york/exhibitions/collection-on-view/thannhauser-collection

So, while other members were listening to our guide standing in front of a painting, I went to one of the museum "guards", a young man, and asked :

- "Excuse me, I'm looking for Tannhäuser's Gate"
- ... ???
- "Well, it's a joke... you know, it's a reference to the movie Blade Runner"
- "Oh ... , I see" (which I wasn't totally sure)

Anyway, it was rather funny Razz

(no photos because it's forbidden in this museum, outside the "main hall" at the bottom of the spire.)

It would've been great if the guard knew the movie, but what's more interesting is that the Guggenheim was designed by FLLW (famous American Architect) who also designed Ennis House in L.A. and where some of the scene from BR were shot (+that famous tile in Deck's apt).

I went there once for an exhibit of Brazilian art. And they painted the interior black! Now that was something!
