The Guggeheim in Bilbao

The last stop in my trip to Spain was Bilbao.  The city in recent years has become an international destination with the building of the Guggenheim.  The building, designed by Frank Gehry, is shaped like a “ship” with fish-like titanium scales.  I loved how it caught the colors of the city at different times of day.

The collection housed inside of the Guggenheim was much smaller than I expected.  The temporary Munoz exhibit was very good, and my appreciation for Richard Serra grew after seeing his permanent pieces.  But overall, the building itself much overshadowed the art inside.
