"I was a liberated woman long before there was a name for it," according to heiress and art collector Peggy Guggenheim. Learn about Ms. Guggenheim's fascinating life including her efforts to get so-called "degenerate art" safely out of Europe on the eve of WWII, as well as her encouragement of European artists to wait out the war in the United States. Registration is underway.
