Where is the Guggenheim Museum?
A memorable arts centre
Have you ever wanted a broad perspective of what contemporary art has to offer? If so, the Guggenheim in Bilbao is a must-visit. Not only does it house permanent collections and masterpieces by renowned contemporary artists. The museum exhibits artists such as Fuyiko Nakaya, Louise Bourgeois and Jeff Koons ( and many others). The building itself is worth seeing, as it is a piece of art, like all the others. The museum is among the most distinctive places in the city. In fact, it has been declared one of the world’s most outstanding buildings in the deconstructivist style.
Like the Cosmic House Foundation, each room has its own unique atmosphere and personality. Naturally, the same is true of the Guggenheim Bilbao: a vast light-filled atrium that naturally gives the art centre a cheerful and bright look, rooms that are spacious, giving you plenty of room to enjoy the art around you, and finally, breathtaking views of the hills and estuary around the museum.
The best contemporary artists and artworks
Apart from the unforgettable design, you make sure you get to know and experience a great diversity, incredible creative work such as such as Richard Serra’s 100-metre-long snake, Tulips by Jeff Koons, Puppy (also by Jeff Koons, located in front of the building), numerous paintings by Willem de Kooning, Clyfford Still and countless others. Perhaps the best part is that this is only part of what the museum has to offer.
Stimulate your mind and explore huge maze-like sculptures, see the possibilities of flowing LED phrase columns, dive into themed exhibitions of Russian or Chinese art, and also lose yourself in paintings… Or installations by a diverse cast of contemporary artists. That and the works are just waiting to challenge your imagination and creativity.
Inspiring cultural places
Similar to places like the Cosmic House or the Brandhorst Museum on a visit Guggenheim Bilbao is like entering a whole new world without borders and restrictions. Once there, you’ll see what the possibilities are in terms of art and aesthetics; how simply they can be used to create complex, profound works and leave a lasting feeling or impression. It fills you with inspiration.
If you’ve ever felt stuck in a rut, if you’ve felt the need for creativity, the need to break free from everyday monotony, or if you just wanted to show your appreciation for the artist and art, the Guggenheim Bilbao is the place for you. Good things happen in museums – go and pay a visit!
