New York City's Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum and the Strip's Venetian Resort on Friday formally unveiled museum-building plans so important to this town--far better known for fun than fine art--that even rival casino mogul Steve Wynn showed up to bask in the news. The Guggenheim plans to build two museum exhibition spaces at the Venetian. One, inside the resort, will showcase art in partnership with Russia's State Hermitage Museum.
